What is Solution Polymerization? (with pictures)

May 29, 2020· Solution polymerization is used to create polymers and copolymers by dissolving a monomer and a catalyst in a non-reactive solvent.During this process, the solvent liquid absorbs the heat generated by the chemical reaction which controls the reaction rate. The liquid solvent used in the solution polymerization procedure usually remains a solvent for the resulting polymer or copolymer.

Emulsion Polymerization - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Emulsion polymerization involves dispersion of a water-insoluble monomer (e.g., styrenes, alkyl (meth)acrylates, etc.) in water with the aid of emulsifiers, followed by the addition of the water-soluble (e.g., ammonium peroxodisulfate, APS) or oil-soluble (e.g., dibenzoyl peroxide, DBP) initiator. The APS-initiated direct emulsion polymerization is a two-step process (Scheme 5):
