Polymer Networks: Principles of Their Formation, Structure and Properties
Springer, 1998 - Science - 343 pages
Written by an international team of authors with a strong emphasis on the underlying chemistry, this book forms a timely, concise, and accessible evaluation of the fundamentals of polymer network formation, structure, and properties, and how these three aspects are interrelated.

In non-linear polymerizations, with reactants of low functionalities and reaction
mixtures usually, initially, of low viscosity, the gel point occurs well after the start
of a polymerization and is manifest by a dramatic increase in viscosity and the ...
The ability to process reactive systems with a wide range of viscosities (10- 10
000 Pas) gives REX an advantage over other conventional reactors, particularly
for high viscosities. This advantage is clearly exemplified by equation (5.1) which
 using adiabatic rheometry to investigate a linear, phase-separating RIM
system, showed the sharp rise in viscosity to be coincident with physical gelation
resulting from vitrification of the hard- segment-rich phase. As the hard-segment ...
