Polymers were obtained by free-radical solution polymerization of styrene, carried out by continuous feed-type polymerization. It is a simple random copolymer. An improved process for the polymerization of styrene is provided. The onset temperature of uninhibited styrene due to bulk polymerization was determined to be 104 °C by DSC. The temperature is selected so that the heat load due to the heat of polymerization will essentially balance the reactor cooling capacity plus the sensible heat needed to raise the styrene from ambient temperature to polymerization temperature. The SAN copolymer generally contains 70–80% styrene and 20–30% acrylonitrile. Styrene and acrylonitrile monomers can be copolymerized to form a random, amorphous copolymer that has good weatherability, stress crack resistance, and barrier properties. STYRENE STY CAUTIONARY RESPONSE INFORMATION ... conditions, polymerization may take place which may lead to container explosion. An experimental study of thermal polymerization of styrene in the temperature range 100–200°C and conversion range 0–100% is reported. The copolymer is called styrene acrylonitrile or SAN. The thermal initiation becomes substantial at polymerization temperatures above 100°C (Chen, 2000). Polymerization reactions have caused a number of serious incidents in the past; they are prone to reaction runaways because of their exothermic and autoaccelerating nature. 3 ) Temperature (°C) General Information Figure 1.3 Styrene Monomer Density of Saturated Liquid as a Function of Temperature Table 1.2 Styrene Monomer Densities as a Function of Temperature 4.2. To minimalize the risk, the reaction is commonly performed in a solvent as empirical industrial practice. Chemical Science 2019 , 10 (34) , … STYRENE MONOMER is a colorless, oily liquid, moderately toxic, flammable. Oxygen atom transfer with organofunctionalized polyoxovanadium clusters: O-atom vacancy formation with tertiary phosphanes and deoxygenation of styrene oxide. Conversions, molecular weight averages, and molecular weight distributions were measured. By using TAM, an exothermic thermal curve of uninhibited styrene was newly measured even as low as 50 °C in an isothermal test which took 15 days. The polymerization of styrene can be initiated thermally and by bi-functional peroxide, following the conventional kinetics of free-radical initiation, propagation, termination, and chain transfer.
