New Methods of Polymerization

  • C. E. H. Bawn

Abstract

Every addition polymerization process involves two fundamental steps: initiation and propagation. Termination is also an important step but in some processes termination may be avoided by a judicious choice of experimental conditions. In the exploration of either new methods of polymerization or the development of existing methods attention may be concentrated on either the initiation process or on the propagation reaction. Sometimes both of the steps may be involved together. This paper will be largely concerned with recent progress in the study and development of new initiators and initiating processes.
