In this work, four polymerization mechanisms with flow are proposed where sustained oscillation can be present: (1) Polyaddition initiated by radicals produced by initiator decomposition, which is catalyzed by the polymer, first-order termination, a polymer disappears by a reaction with a third substance and by leaving the system in the exit flow. (2) Polycondensation where the polymer has catalytic activity upon H to produce a monomer, first-order termination and a monomer disappears by a reaction with a third substance, and there is exit flow for all the species. (3) Polycondensation with catalytic activity of the polymer upon A to produce a monomer, first-order termination, conformational transitions of the polymers, one of the polymer conformations disappears by a reaction with a monomer and exit flow for all the species. (4) Polycondensation combined with polyaddition where the polycondensation polymer product has catalytic activity on the monomer, first-order termination and exit flow of all the species.
