Abstract

On the basis of experimental data obtained from copolymer systems composed of donor, acceptor and neutral monomers the copolymerization behaviour as a function of the conversion degree was derived. The heterogeneity of the composition was calculated for experiments carried out under discontinuous process conditions (batch reactor). The influence of the reaction conditions on the chemical polydispersity was investigated in connection with continuous process conditions. The effects of incomplete micromixing on free radical copolymerization processes are presented and discussed by model calculations.
