(chemical engineering)
A process for producing an addition polymer by heating the monomer, solvent, initiator, and catalyst together, with polymerization continuing as the solvent is removed.

Comparing to solution polymerization, emulsion synthesis, reduces the molecular weight distribution, according to GPC-50.
Synthetic rubber production is executed by two main technologies, including emulsion and solution polymerization.
These come from SABIC's purchase of Nexlene solution polymerization technology from South Korea's SK Global Chemical.
Abstract An ambient-temperature self-crosslinkable acrylic resin was synthesized by solution polymerization, with ethanol as solvent; butyl acrylate (BA), methyl methacrylate (MMA), acrylic acid (AA), hydroxypropyl acrylate (HPA), and diacetone acrylamide (DAAM) as monomers; and adipic acid dihydrazide (ADH) as crosslinker.
Since carbazole is not soluble in water and soluble in chloroform, carbazole was oxidized using chloroform soluble benzoyl peroxide oxidant by solution polymerization pathway.
The two types we use are free radical emulsion polymerization and solution polymerization.
Location: Tembusu district, Jurong Island, Singapore Capacity: Phase 1 - 50,000 tons/year Phase 2 - 50,000 tons/ year (planned) Production: S-SBR for fuel-efficient high-performance tires Process: Solution polymerization Scheduled start-up: Phase 1 - May 2013 (Phase 2 - early 2015)
The polybutylmethacrylate obtained by solution polymerization in 1-methyl-2-pyrrolidone exhibited the same results (not shown here).
Such polymers obtained from bulk or solution polymerization, however, necessitate some tedious treatments, such as grinding and sieving before use (Bolman & Revsbech 2005).
Unlike traditional solution polymerization (which involves water-based coagulation, separation by steam stripping, and drying), the direct devolatilization process requires only two steps: continuous main evaporation of the solvent and unreacted monomer, and continuous final devolatilization of the elastomer.
Most waterborne graphic arts polymers are either low-molecular weight resins made in a solution polymerization process or emulsions, which incorporate low molecular-weight resins as raw materials.
Most studies have used either bulk or solution polymerization, while few groups have examined the behavior of living radical systems in aqueous-based polymerizations.
