Investigation of Simultaneous Chemical-Transformation and Heat-Exchange Process Occurring in the Process of Synthesis of Divinyl Rubber on the Basis of a Cobaltous Catalyst in a Cascade of Two Continuous-Operation Reactors
A mathematical model of polymerization of butadiene based on a cobaltous catalyst in a cascade of two continuous-operation reactors has been developed. The simultaneous processes of chemical transformations and heat exchange occurring in this case were described by a system of equations for heat balance and initial times of molecular-mass distribution in a steady-state regime. The model developed was used for investigating the dependence of the molecular-mass characteristics of the polymerization process studied and the temperature in the cascade of reactors on the monomer and initiator concentrations as well as for determining the optimum regimes of the polymerization process.
