Abstract

The kinetics of the emulsion polymn. of butadiene at 60 Deg in Smith-Ewart interval III were investigated using peroxodisulfate as initiator. The aim of this work was to obtain insight in the radical adsorption and desorption rate coeffs. through monitoring non-steady-state kinetics. The acquired data shows an initiator concn. dependence of the desorption-rate coeffs. This dependence explains the independence of the rate of butadiene emulsion polymn. of the peroxodisulfate concn. in the presence of tertiary dodecylthiols
