ACOMP Feedback Controller for Polymer Molecular Weight

In this technical note we will demonstrate the use of active feedback control with Lab ACOMP to directly control polymer molecular weight by adjusting the monomer feed into the reactor. By integrating ACOMP with a feedback controller, molecular weight is directly controlled, something previously not possible in polymerizations.

Automatic Synthesis of Multimodal Polymers

Fluence Analytics collaborated with its academic research partner Tulane PolyRMC on a peer review publication in Macromolecular Reaction Engineering. An automatic molecular weight controller is used in semi-batch reactions to produce final polymers that contain distinct subpopulations with different molecular weight distributions (MWD). While blending polymers with different MWD is frequently used to make multimodal polymer products,...

Automatic Control of Polymer Molecular Weight during Synthesis

Fluence Analytics and its academic research partner Tulane PolyRMC collaborated on a peer review article for Macromolecules which discusses using ACOMP to automatically control polymer molecular weight during synthesis. The continuous record of monomer and polymer concentrations, Cm and Cp, and cumulative weight-average mass, Mw, furnished by automatic continuous online monitoring of polymerization reactions (ACOMP) has been harnessed...
