Abstract

A mean value of 339 L mol-1 s-1 was obtained for the propagation const. derived from pulsed-laser polymn. (PLP) of styrene in aq. AOT microemulsions. For accurate detns., simulations accounting for the esp. high radical concn. after the laser pulse in microemulsions were recommended. PLP with microemulsions apparently permitted specific kinetic aspects such as transfer to monomer and influence of droplet size on bimol. termination to be studied in detail
