      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.

      A multi-stage polymerization method using a dynamic power-compensating reactor for preparing bimodal PE in-reactor blends is presented. Control of ultrahigh-molecular-weight fractions is achieved by isothermal, isobaric, and isoperibolic steady-state polymerization conditions in a slurry.

    1. Detailed Microstructure Investigation of Acrylate/Methacrylate Functional Copolymers by Kinetic Monte Carlo Simulation (pages 319–329)

      Shaghayegh Hamzehlou, Yuri Reyes and Jose R. Leiza

      Version of Record online: 6 JUL 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201200016

      The architecture of acrylate/methacrylate functional copolymers is studied by MC simulation in homogeneous media in batch and semibatch reactors. Detailed information on the complex structures of these branched polymers can be extracted. Branching density and functional monomer composition as a function of chain length can be easily determined.

    2. Quantum Chemical Investigation of Secondary Reactions in Poly(vinyl chloride) Free-Radical Polymerization (pages 330–345)

      Danilo Cuccato, Marco Dossi, Davide Moscatelli and Giuseppe Storti

      Version of Record online: 24 JUL 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201200010

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Vinyl chloride polymerization is investigated using quantum chemical methods, with emphasis on the reactions involving MCRs. A kinetic model accounting for such reactions is developed to elucidate their impact on the final polymer properties. The contribution of backbiting reactions is relevant in determining the radical migration along the chains.

    1. Vanadium-Modified Bimetallic Phillips Catalyst With High Branching Ability for Ethylene Polymerization (pages 346–350)

      Akanksha Matta, Yanning Zeng, Toshiaki Taniike and Minoru Terano

      Version of Record online: 6 JUL 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201200015

      The effects of addition of vanadium and varying the pH value of impregnation solution are investigated. The bimetallic Phillips catalyst prepared by addition of vanadium improves the catalyst performance in terms of catalyst branching ability and activity. Also, catalyst activity and polymer branching are highly dependent on the pH of the impregnation solution.

    2. Effect of Cocatalyst in Ethylene/Styrene Copolymerization by Aryloxo-Modified Half-Titanocene–Cocatalyst Systems for Exclusive Synthesis of Copolymers at High Styrene Concentrations (pages 351–356)

      Kotohiro Nomura, Naohiro Suzuki, Dong-Hyun Kim and Hyun Joon Kim

      Version of Record online: 13 JUL 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201200024

      The effect of a cocatalyst on the product distributions in ethylene/styrene copolymerizations by Cp*TiCl2(O-2,6-iPr2C6H3) under high styrene/ethylene feed ratio is explored: The use of [PhN(H)Me2][B(C6F5)4] and AliBu3/Al(octyl)3 cocatalysts affords the copolymers as the sole product even at 55 and 70 °C.
