Modelling and simulation of batch and semi-batch emulsion copolymerization of styrene and butyl acrylate

Abstract : This work deals with modelling of emulsion polymerization processes using batch and semi-batch reactors. Speciÿc attention is paid to copolymerization of the system styrene/butyl acrylate. The main key parameters of the model are identiÿed on the basis of batch experimental data in order to describe the complete sketch of emulsion polymerization. The model is then used to simulate, under several operating conditions, the polymerization rate, the global monomers conversion, the number and weight average molecular weights as well as the particle size distribution and the glass transition temperature. Then, the model is generalized to the use of semi-batch processes and validated for this application. ?
