Syllabus of University of Pune M.E(Polymer Engg)Semester I-Polymer Reaction Engineering
509118 [Elective I] (a) : Polymer Reaction Engineering
Teaching Scheme Examination Scheme
Lectures : 3 Hrs/Week Paper : 100 Marks
To understand the distinguishing features and challenges involved in polymer
manufacturing processes as compared to monomer manufacturing processes.
Review of types and methods of polymerization MW and MWD in polymers.
Important aspects of polymers, polymerization reaction engineering as compared
with monomers and their reaction engineering, the effect of mixing on kinetics and
Polymerization kinetics for both step growth as well as chain growth mechanism
under ideal and real conditions. Chain growth includes free radical, anionic and
Diffusion controlled polymerization.
Tromsdorff effect in Free Radical Polymerization. Models of Tromsdorff effect.
Extension of these models to step growth polymerizations at high conversions.
Interfacial polymerizations in immiscible monomers case.
Review of RTD & macro and micro mixing in reaction vessels. Comparison of
performance batch. Homogeneous continuously stirred tank, segregated
continuous stirred tank reactor and laminar flow tubular reactor in case of ionic,
free radical and step growth polymerization. Degree of polymerization and MWD.
Models of Heterogeneous Polymerizations. Solution / precipitation, suspension and
Emulsion polymerization. Smith Ewart Model. Application to continuous emulsion
polymerization. Co-ordination polymerization in fluidized bed reactor.
Design fundaments of reactors for tailor making polymers example metalocene
polyolefins. Qualitative account of control engineering considerations in operation
of batch and continuous polymerization process.
