Cover: Secondary reactions in Free Radical Polymerization of Poly(vinyl chloride) are investigated in order to better understand the influence of mid-chain radicals on both process kinetics and polymer morphology. Individual rate constants of propagation, backbiting, and β-scission are determined computationally using a quantum chemical approach. Further details can be found in the article by D. Cuccato, M. Dossi, D. Moscatelli,* and G. Storti on page 330.
