Evaluation of the Kinetics of Free Radical Polymerization
Study of the dynamics of chemical reactions through kinetic analysis of pseudostationary (non-stationary) polymerization. Evaluation of the individual rate constants of chain propagation and bimolecular termination in form of , where kp (rate constant of chain propagation) and kt (rate constant of chain termination). Determination of kp by pulsed-laser initiation and analysis of the chain-length distribution (cld) of the polymer formed, to yield the propagation constant kp from the position L0 of the low-molecular-weight-side and studying the influence of a chain-length dependence of the rate coefficient of chain termination.
Research and Other Interests :
- The use of water and physiological medium soluble polymers as blood plasma expander or a carrier of biologically active compound as a polymeric drug.
- Using sol-gel as a chemical sensors, drug-delivery systems
- Teaching development is one of my concerns because it can be a basis for guaranteeing the quality of teaching and learning in the universities. There are some debates concerning conception of teaching (COTs) which is related to university teacher’s beliefs.
- Serving communities and students.
Interests: General Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Literature Survey, Research Methodology, Bioethics
