Modeling of Emulsion Copolymerizations Will it Ever be Possible? Part III Conclusion

A. M. van Herk
2012 Journal of Colloid Science and Biotechnology  
In this paper some of the challenging aspects of modeling kinetics of emulsion copolymerizations will be discussed, giving a retrospective and a perspective on the area. In order to describe the fundamental processes in emulsion polymerization, like entry of radicals, many basic kinetic and thermodynamic coefficients are needed but still lacking. The important parameters in modeling emulsion copolymerizations will be discussed and some of the latest progress in the area will be highlighted.
