Polymers are large molecules which is made by repetition chains of small, simple chemical units called “Monomers”. Chains can be branched or interconnected to form 3D networks.

So we can see from the applications, we are surrounded by polymers starting from the toothbrush to automobile interiors, apart from these researches are conducted meticulously to discover new polymers which are economically feasible, light, harmless, stiff, easily degradable (cellulose acetate is a degradable polymer used in cigarette butts, textiles).

Since polymerization and chemical reactions polymers are the same in some aspects, but they vary when it comes to reaction engineering. According to the reactor are designed. Polymers undergo chemical…

Types of Polymerization Reactions

Author: GaugeHow Team

Polymerization reactions are of two types: addition or chain-growth polymerization and condensation or step-growth polymerization. Addition or chain-growth polymerization In this type, the monomers are generally unsaturated (alkenes and alkynes)…

Polymerization Reactors

Author: GaugeHow Team

The chemical reactions dealing polymers depends on two factors, sense of reactor and reaction engineering. But the design of reactors depends on various factors like viscosity, diffusivity, and nature of…

Polymer Solutions

Author: GaugeHow Team

Polymer solutions are those containing dissolved polymers. Generally, the dissolution process of polymer is often slow. It is a two-stage process, first solvent molecules come in contact with polymer and…
