SENSORS: Fundamental Measurements in Online Polymerization Reaction Monitoring and Control with a Focus on ACOMP

Alina M. Alb, Wayne F. Reed*

Fundamental measurements of quantities related to polymerization reactions made online can provide a quantitative and comprehensive picture of the reaction as it evolves. ACOMP is a platform for integrating several fundamental measurements, such as light scattering, viscosity, refractive index, and UV/Visible/IR spectroscopy. Several recent advances in the area are reviewed.
