A customer had conceived of a series of potential new polymer products that could be produced by a liquid phase polymerization. AVN set up laboratory equipment to perform the polymerization and carried out several batch runs. Key steps included addition of the required amount of initiator, generation of the desired molecular weight product, and removal of unreacted monomer. This information was then used to design a pilot scale process. The larger scale unit was operated to produce multi-kilogram batches of several novel products.
