High yield synthesis of high quality expandable and high impact polystyrene via a sustainable multi-scale design strate Ghent University
For the Chinese and European polystyrene industry, a joint challenge is product innovation toward
high-quality products in a sustainable manner. Such innovation relies on the dedicated control of
multiphase polymerizations possessing a strong multi-scale character: (i) reactions and diffusional
limitations at the micro-scale; (ii) particle size/morphological changes at the meso-scale; (iii)
imperfect mixing and temperature ...
