Abstract

Effects of the micromixing on copolymerizalion of styrene and acrylonitrile in dimethylformamide were studied in a continuous stirred tank reactor.
Since the reaction rate is complicated in dependencies upon the mole fraction of styrene and monomer concentration, the apparent order of reaction varies in the progress of reaction, hence the micromixing has an effect on the conversion and copolymer composition.
It was suggested from the comparison between theoretical and experimental results that the reactor produded complete micromixing in the range of conditions of the present experiment.
