Polymer Functionalization 


A customer was developing a new family of polymers and wanted to evaluate the properties of the new materials after a functionalization step by reaction with an additional monomer. The reaction needed to be performed under the same conditions used in commercial operation for the existing product line. AVN evaluated the commercial process, devised a laboratory reactor to carry out the reaction, and demonstrated the process. It was then successfully scaled up to produce multi-kilogram batches of the functionalized polymer.
