Particle Coagulation of Emulsion Polymers: A Review of Experimental and Modelling Studies

Abstract : Particle coagulation, in conjunction with nucleation and growth, plays a significant role in determining the evolution of particle size distribution in emulsion polymerizations. Therefore, many modelling and experimental studies have been carried out to have a better understanding and control of the particle coagulation phenomenon in order to achieve high-quality as well as highly efficient industrial production. This article presents a review of modelling and experimental studies focused on the particle coagulation phenomenon in emulsion polymerizations. The state-of-art of particle coagulation modelling pertaining to emulsion polymerizations is discussed. Experimental studies concerned with latex coagulation processes are summarized next. The review finishes by discussing outstanding problems that need attention and sharing our perspectives on future developments.
