Mathematical Simulation Study of Copolymer Composition and Compositional Heterogeneity during the Synthesis of Emulsion-Type Butadiene-Styrene Rubber

Author(s): Svetlana Mustafina, Eldar Miftakhov and Tatiana Mikhailova

At the moment, synthetic rubbers range is wide enough. The most common are the rubbers received through the mechanism of free-radical copolymerization of butadiene with styrene in the emulsion. Procedure of monomer ad dition to the polymer chain determ ines the properties of rubber. Production of styrene-butadiene ru bber is a complex process, which simplifies the study of the construction of mathematical model. In turn, it allows to understand course of the process, perform its optimization and predict characteristics of the final product.
