Abstract: Polymerization conditions for the bimolecular NMRP of styrene using TEMPO and BPO were revisited and expanded with the objective of creating a more complete and reliable source of experimental data for parameter estimation and model validation purposes. Three different experimental techniques were assessed for the NMRP of styrene. The reliability of results produced in vials with inert nitrogen atmosphere was evaluated, taking as reference the more reliable technique using sealed ampoules with inert atmosphere. Polymerization rate data obtained in vials could be considered reliable if monomer loss was taken into account, but the reliability of molecular weight data at high conversions may be questionable. Polymerizations at 120 and 130 degrees C and with TEMPO to BPO, molar ratios of 0.9 to 1.5 were carried out. Comparison of the experimental data collected against predictions obtained with a detailed kinetic model previously reported in the literature suggest that either the present understanding of the reaction system is incomplete, or some of the kinetic rate constants reported in the literature are not accurate, or both. Guidelines on how to address and design future experimental and modeling studies are offered.
