Chemical engineering of polymer dispersions

Jan Sefcik, Giuseppe Storti, Hua Wu, Massimo Morbidelli

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The research activity on dispersed polymers - polymer particle size from tens of nanometers to hundreds of microns - carried out at ETH in our group is reviewed with a brief summary of the various projects currently in progress. These have been organized into two main categories: Polymer Reaction Engineering, where polymerization reaction and reactor operation and control are involved, and Colloidal Engineering, focused on the control of particle size distribution and development of special latex post-treatment processes, such as gelation.
