Catalytic olefin insertion polymerization has undergone dramatic changes in recent years, from both scientific and commerical points of view. The boundaries originally determined by Karl Ziegler have finally been exceeded and insertion polymerization is now a commercially attractive process and environmentally sound. On September 28 and 29, 2000, BASF AG hosted the Conference on Insertion Poymerization in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Experts from around the world gathered to present and discuss the state-of -the-art in insertion polymerization, with special emphasis on recent scientific breakthroughs, industrial applications and future prospects. This volume of Macromolecular Symposia contains many of the papers presented and provides an overview of the current state and predicted directions of insertion polymerization research and technology.Using a modified RC1c heat flow calorimeter of the Mettler Toledo AG we are now able to study the bulk polymerization process in some detail. Doing this we ... mass polymerization at T = 50AdC in combination with the regarded particle growth.
