Project description

The requested equipment allows to obtain fundamental characteristics and insights for emulsion polymerizaiton, an important chemical production process and to synthesize new functional polymeric materials under industrially relevant conditions, due to the inherent flexibility with respect to control over reaction temperature, mixing and feeding rates. It will allows to strengthen the University in the research field of polymer reaction engineering.
