Knowledge-based development of emulsion polymerization processes for tailoring of polymer latex properties
Several knowledge-based strategies for the efficient and consistent production of high performance emulsion polymers are discussed. These strategies involve the understanding of the effect of the process variables on polymer microstructure, as well as the development of quantitative polymer microstructure/product properties relationships. Case studies included tailoring adhesive properties, efficient use of reactive surfactants and optimal monomer removal by postpolymerization.
