Abstract

Inspection of tabulated rate coefficients shows that there is a wide divergence in literature values of kinetic parameters for free radical polymerizations under ostensibly the same conditions. This communication is an attempt to initiate a solution to this problem by seeing if agreement exists on the values of some fundamental kinetic parameters for simple monomers, determined using quite different experimental techniques (e. g. , comparing bulk versus emulsion data, 'classical' rate studies versus ESR studies, etc. ) 17 Refs.
