Methodologies are developed for studying the steady‐state operation of propylene polymerization in continuous‐flow stirred tank reactors (CFSTRs). The effect of several reactor operating variables and reaction variables (e.g., mean residence time, catalyst deactivation rate, multisite catalyst activity, etc.) on polymer properties is obtained. It is found that a compromise has to be made between the yield of the polymer and its polydispersity index, since they usually show opposing trends with the me…
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.
