thermal polymerization

thermal polymerization

[′thər·məl pə‚lim·ə·rə′zā·shən]
(chemical engineering)
A thermal, petroleum refining process used to convert light hydrocarbon gases into liquid fuels; paraffinic hydrocarbons are cracked to produce olefinic material which is concurrently polymerized by heat and pressure to form liquids, the product being known as polymer gasoline.

Based on the aforementioned results, redox and thermal polymerization were carried out at O/W and W/O type emulsions, respectively.

2]-N- protons, respectively, validates the existence of oxazine ring, which is important for the subsequent thermal polymerization.
Regarding the resins' behavior when submitted to a lack of hydration (2nd reading), and to an ensuing rehydration (3rd reading), it was observed that in the conventional thermal polymerization group, the values for nanohardness were very similar when using the standard time of polymerization, except for a few variations, as can be seen in Graph 1.
In order to get a better feel about how narrow the polydispersity values are in NMRP, values from thermal polymerization of styrene (in the absence of initiator and nitroxide), as well as thermal NMRP (nitroxide-mediated polymerization of styrene in the absence of initiator) are also presented in Figure 17b and c.

This was a polymer of 2,3-dimethylbutadiene produced by thermal polymerization at 30-70 [degrees] C in a process lasting from 2-6 months
In those IPNs, the urethane was formed under thermal polymerization and the acrylate by photo-polymerization.
Eliminating the hexadecane increases the rate since it (1) results in a small increase in monomer concentration, which directly results in higher rate, and (2) leads to an appreciable increase in the thermal initiation rate (and hence the active radical concentration) because of the third order dependence of the thermal polymerization rate on monomer concentration.
FTIR and DSC were used to study the thermal polymerization of benzoxazine monomers through monitoring of the changes of the characteristic peak of benzoxazine ring and the amount of exotherms, respectively.
The reason behind this phenomenon is not clear, but it is most likely caused by the thermal polymerization at relatively high temperature.
