Applications Related to Polymerization Reactions

Chemical Reaction Kinetics Studies
Fundamental Understanding of Reactions Rates and Factors Affecting Them

Chemical reaction kinetics, also known as reaction kinetics, reflect rates of chemical reactions and provide a better understanding of their dependencies on reaction variables. Reaction kinetic studies provide enhanced insight into reaction mechanisms. Learn how to obtain data rich information for more complete reaction kinetic information.

Heat Transfer and Process Scale-up
How Heat Transport in Agitated Vessels Affects Process Scale-up

Scaling up a chemical process from lab to manufacturing gives useful results only with accurate heat transfer coefficients. Measuring the jacket and reactor temperature (during the release of a well-defined amount of heat) allows researchers to accurately compute the thermal resistance, which is used to model the heat transfer and make critical predictions for reactors at larger scale. Reaction calorimetry is essential to determine parameters that impact the heat transfer and the heat transfer coefficients, to develop models to maximize the bandwidth of a manufacturing plant.

Mass Transfer and Reaction Rate
Mixing in a Chemical Reactor and the Effect on Reaction Kinetics and Scale-up

Mixing is the reduction or elimination of inhomogeneity of phases that are either miscible or immiscible. Process scale-up and optimization require that the impact of mixing on the reaction rate be quantified. Automated, controlled experiments can be run in parallel in a laboratory reactor system to establish a mass transfer correlation, and provide a means to quickly adjust the gas/ liquid interface area and reactor volume. This achieves the desired conditions required for the scale-up or scale-down of a process.

Flow Chemistry
Improve Safety, Reduce Cycle Time, Increase Quality and Yield

Continuous flow chemistry opens options with exothermic synthetic steps that are not possible in batch reactors, and new developments in flow reactor design provide alternatives for reactions that are mixing limited in batch reactors. This can often result in better product quality and higher yield.  When coupled with Process Analytical Technology (PAT), flow chemistry allows for rapid analysis, optimization, and scale-up of a chemical reaction.

Chemical Process Safety
Avoid Losing Control over a Chemical Process

Chemical process safety focuses on preventing incidents and accidents during manufacturing of chemicals and pharmaceuticals on a large scale. It refers to unintentional release of potentially dangerous materials and energy to the environment during a chemical reaction or because of a runaway reaction.

Control Residual Isocyanate
Process Analytical Technology for Continuous Measurement of NCO

Isocyanates are critical building blocks for high performance polyurethane-based polymers that make up coatings, foams, adhesives, elastomers, and insulation. Concerns over exposure to residual isocyanates led to new limits for residual isocyanates in new products. Traditional analytical methods for measuring the residual isocyanate (NCO) concentration using offline sampling and analysis raise concerns. In situ monitoring with process analytical technology addresses these challenges and enables manufacturers and formulators to ensure that product quality specifications, personnel safety, and environmental regulations are met.

Key Syntheses in Pharmaceutical and Polymer Chemistry

Compounds containing fluorine are important in pharmaceutical and polymer industry applications. Fluorination chemistry occurs when a fluorine atom is introduced into an organic compound. The nature of the substrate molecule, the type of fluorine source and reaction conditions control the kinetics, thermodynamics and overall safety of a fluorination reaction. Fluorinations can be very energetic and specificity can be difficult to control. For this reason, understanding these reactions from a kinetics and thermodynamic perspective is critical to ensuring yield, quality and safety. For these reasons, in situ spectroscopy, automated sampling, and automated laboratory reactors are invaluable technologies for reactions that use fluorine or fluorine compounds for to perform fluorinations.
