Topological Analysis on the Dispersion Polymerization of Styrene in Ethanol
Jung Mo Son, Hyungsuk Pak*
A topological theory has been introduced to explain and evaluate the fractional volumes of system materials, the change of the weight and concentration of monomer molecules, molecular weight distribution, and interaction functions of polymer-polymer and polymer-oligomer, etc. for dispersion polymerization. The previous theory of Lu et al. has offered only an incomplete simulation model for dispersion polymer systems, whereas our present one gives a general theoretical model applicable to all the polymerization systems. The theory of Lu et al. considered only the physical property term caused by interaction between matters of low molecular weight (i.e., diluent, monomer, and oligomer) and polymer particles without dealing with physical properties caused by the structure of polymer networks in polymer particles, while our theory deals with all physical effect possible, caused by the displacement of not only entangled points but also junction points in polymer particles. The theoretically predictive values show good agreement with the experimental data for dispersion polymerization systems.
