The Prediction of Particle Size and Molecular Weight Distributions in Emulsion Polymerization
The ability to predict latex particle size distributions is of significant practical importance as many physical and end use properties of the latex are directly related to this characteristic. It goes without saying that the prediction of the accompanying molecular weight distribution is of equal importance. From a theoretical standpoint, the quantitative analysis of these two distributions is desirable in that it more fully realizes the implications of Harkins mechanistic concepts and allows a more critical evaluation of the deficiencies of the theory.
