      Polymer industry plays a significant role in our society; however, it is also related to issues such as the extensive use of fossil-based raw materials and environmental concerning reagents. In light of sustainability, the application of the 12 principles of green chemistry to polymer production processes is discussed in this review.

    1. Development of a 2D Single Particle Model to Analyze the Effect of Initial Particle Shape and Breakage in Olefin Polymerization (pages 29–45)

      Mohsen Najafi, Mahmoud Parvazinia, Mir Hamid Reza Ghoreishy and Costas Kiparissides

      Article first published online: 21 AUG 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201300124

      The effects of initial particle shape and particle breakage on the average molecular weight properties and polymerization rate in the heterogeneous Ziegler–Natta olefin polymerization are examined using a two-dimensional (2D) Galerkin finite element modeling. A 2D growth model is developed and applied on finite element meshes.

    2. In Situ Incorporation of Recycled Polystyrene in Styrene Suspension Polymerizations (pages 46–60)

      Caio K. Melo, Matheus Soares, Carlos A. Castor, Príamo A. Melo and José Carlos Pinto

      Article first published online: 16 SEP 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/mren.201300144

      The in situ incorporation of polystyrene wastes in styrene suspension polymerization reactions is studied. When the initial polymer contents are similar, monomer conversion trajectories are, unlike the average molar masses, not affected by the polymer incorporation due to chain transfer to impurities. A mathematical model is developed to simulate the polymerization reaction, taking into account the average molar mass and concentration of the incorporated polymer resin.
