Low levels of oligomer molecules are generally desirable in polymeric materials. It is known that several reactor variables can affect the oligomer distribution, and therefore it is useful to have predictive models for molecular weight distribution. The normal approach of a differential equation–based model is very complex to set up if it is applied rigorously to include all the non‐Flory aspects of the step growth polycondensation and in particular the interfacial polycarbonate polymerization. In th…
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.
