Critical effects resulting from reaction-induced changes in viscosity

  • D. A. Vaganov


Chemical reactions induce changes in viscosity, this effect being quite pronounced in the case of polymerization processes. The fact that the coefficient of viscosity changes as the degree of chemical advancement increases gives rise to specific hydrodynamic effects in a flowing liquid. Some of these effects are discussed in the present paper.
