Abstract:

Rate equations and enthalpic parameters were derived for use in differential thermal analysis DTA of polymerization reactions. General free radical polymerization kinetics are discussed and the existence of a stationary state under DTA conditions was demonstrated, by comparison of a theoretical computer curve, based on stationary state assumption, with actual experimental conditions. These curves appear to be almost superimposable.
