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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
