The macrokinetics of the synthesis of butyl rubber in a cylindrical-type tubular turbulent reactor (cationic suspension copolymerization of isobutylene with isoprene, catalyst is aluminum chloride, solvent is methyl chloride, and the synthesis temperature is higher than 173 K) was described mathematically. A relation of the reaction mixture velocity and reactor diameter to the molecular weight characteristics of butyl rubber was found.
