      Cover: Organo-soluble trioctylammonium-protected styrene sulfonate monomer (SS-TOA) was statistically copolymerized with styrene by nitroxide-mediated polymerization (NMP) to form resins with narrow molecular weight distributions. SS-TOA was also an effective NMP “controller” monomer for gradient copolymerization with glycidyl methacrylate. Further details can be found in the article by V. Consolante and M. Maric* on page 575.

    1. A Continuous-Flow Polymerization Microprocess with Online GPC and Inline Polymer Recovery by Micromixer-Assisted Nanoprecipitation (pages 542–547)

      A complete continuous-flow microprocess is developed starting from a monomer solution and ending with a colloidal suspension of polymer nanoparticles, including online polymer characterization. Polymethacrylates are synthesized in a microreactor and analyzed online by GPC. The polymer solution is finally nanoprecipitated with the use of a micromixer, which enables to get size-adjustable nanoparticles.

    1. Simultaneous Deconvolution of Molecular Weight and Chemical Composition Distribution of Ethylene/1-Olefin Copolymers: Strategy Validation and Comparison (pages 549–562)

      Version of Record online: 30 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201100032

      Four simultaneous deconvolution strategies based on different microstructural information of ethylene/1-olefin copolymers were investigated. Deconvolution based on complete bivariate distribution of molecular weight and chemical composition was found to accurately identify the number of site type and provide best estimated mass fraction and kinetic parameters of each site type.

    2. Thermodynamic Data of Ethylene–Propane Mixtures in Condensed and Supercritical State (pages 563–574)

      Sebastian Kröner, Wang Minjiong and Michael Bartke

      Version of Record online: 23 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201100014

      Experimental thermodynamic data of the system ethylene/propane in condensed and supercritical state is presented in this work. Experiments and simulations are focused on temperature and pressure conditions relevant for heterogeneous polymerization of polyethylene as applied in industry. Good description of the experimental data could be achieved by simulations using the Peng–Robinson EOS with a liquid phase density correction.

    1. Nitroxide-Mediated Polymerization of an Organo-Soluble Protected Styrene Sulfonate: Development of Homo- and Random Copolymers (pages 575–586)

      Valerie Consolante and Milan Marić

      Version of Record online: 23 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201100031

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Trioctylammonium p-styrenesulfonate NMP kinetics are similar to that of styrene, yielding homopolymers and styrene copolymers with equation image<1.1. SS-TOA is tested as a controlling monomer for BlocBuilder-mediated methacrylate copolymerizations. Gradient copolymerization of SS-TOA with GMA results in a monomodal copolymer (equation image=15.7kg·mol−1) with low equation image=1.43 and a GMA content of 85 mol%.

    2. The Integrated Deconvolution Estimation Model: Estimation of Reactivity Ratios per Site Type for Ethylene/1-Butene Copolymers Made with a Heterogeneous Ziegler-Natta Catalyst (pages 587–598)

      Mohammad A. Al-Saleh, João B. P. Soares and Thomas A. Duever

      Version of Record online: 13 OCT 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201100053

      The integrated deconvolution estimation model is used to estimate the reactivity ratios of a heterogeneous Ziegler-Natta catalyst in the presence and absence of hydrogen using two sets of ethylene/1-butene copolymers. A sensitivity analysis for parameter estimation is developed and the effect of the presence of hydrogen on the reactivity ratio per site type is quantified.
