Abstract: Abstract Ordering of the medium in which free radical polymerization is conducted can, under appropriate circumstances, alter the kinetics of the chain‐growth process, resulting in enhanced rates. Since in many systems medium changes occur at higher conversion, it is important to take into account any alterations in the polymerization rate induced by such phenomena. We have found that exotherms initiated by individual laser pulses can be useful in identifying and providing detailed information concerning rate…
