Abstract: Abstract The concept of improved product quality and reduced costs has revolutionized analytical techniques in the polymer industry. It has brought in‐line analysis to the forefront, with near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy proving to be a very viable technique for such operations. A system for continuous in‐line near infrared monitoring of molten polymer blends, copolymers, and polymer reactions is being developed. The ultimate objective is to use this monitoring system to develop feedback control for polymeric…
