Abstract

The ability to fabricate advanced materials with specific properties efficiently requires a complete understanding of the polymerization kinetics and the effect of several preparative variables such as temperature, monomer and initiator. This paper presents an analytical method for describing anterior polymerization in two adjacent thin layers. Both the initial temperatures and initial monomer and initiator concentrations are assumed to depend on the space variable. We prove the existence and uniqueness of solution of the model by actual solution method. The equations are solved using parameter-expanding method and eigenfunctions expansion technique. The results obtained were discussed. The study shows that the Frank-Kamenetskii number and frequency factors of the two reactions have significant effects on the propagation of the polymerization wave.
