It can be seen from these data that even in the case of these thermal uncatalyzed polymerizations, where the molecular weight would be at a maximum compared with catalyzed systems, it is still too low by at least an order of magnitude. , either by pure thermal initiation or by the use of free radical initiators such as the peroxides. 7 °Data taken from Ref. [28]. 6 3500 3500 2100 36 Roderic P. Quirk and Maurice Morton weight rubbery polymers from the dienes. Later, in the 1930s, when emulsion polymerization was introduced, it was found that this system, even though it involves the free radical mechanism, leads to both fast rates and high molecular weights, conducive to the production of synthetic rubber.

This new science included the classical studies of polycondensation by Carothers and Flory and the establishment of the principles governing free radical chain addition reactions by Schulz, Flory, Mayo, and others [11, 12]. Thus it was that the paths of synthetic rubber and macromolecular science finally crossed and became one broad avenue [13]. Hence today the design of a new elastomer or the modification of an old one requires the same kind of molecular architecture which applies to any other polymer and is based on an understanding of the principles of polymerization reactions.

41). 0, which would correspond to an "ideal" copolymerization [61] which would correspond to a random distribution of styrene units along the chain. 0) "Charge weight ratio, 75/25 butadiene/styrene; 50°C. Data taken from Ref. [70]. 2 as determined by high-resolution gel permeation chromatography of ozonolysis products [71]. The observed sequence distribution of monomer units was in accord with calculated values based on the monomer reactivity ratios [72]. 2. 04; they decrease somewhat at lower temperatures but not to a great extent.
