Calculation of the molecular-mass distribution for hyperbranched macromolecules synthesized by living three-dimensional radical polymerization

Theory

Abstract

Kinetic analysis of the scheme underlying the formation of branched and hyperbranched macro- molecules formed by living three-dimensional radical po lymerization in the pregel period makes it possible to derive some theoretical dependences relating the conditions of polymerization and the molecular-mass distribution of polymers. In this case, a polymer product constitutes a mixture of macromolecules with different degrees of branching, and the fractional weight of macromolecules with hyperbranched structure is no more than one-third with respect to the overall polymer product.
