Reference no: EM13544308

For an addition polymerization, the initiation is the slow step (1st order in initiator,R'2------->2R'.). The propagation step is fast with the rate=k1[R.][monomer]. The termination step is also fast with rate=k2[R.]^2. Explain why low concentrations of initiator are used to achieve long polymer chains.
