Custom Polymerization

PSS has more than 30 years of experience in polymer synthesis. Materials have been produced for research needs from small lab scale (1 g) up to steel reactor synthesis in dimensions of 5 kg.

Specialty Polymers and Polymer Networks


PSS masters various polymerization techniques to synthesize multiple kinds of

  • Homopolymers
  • Copolymers (e.g. block copolymers, random copolymers)
  • Branched polymers/copolymers (e.g. star polymers, comb polymers, graft copolymers, dendrimers, hyperbranched polymers) 
  • End-functionalized polymers and macromonomers
  • Deuterated polymers/copolymers
  • Polymer networks

 

Polymerization Techniques


PSS uses all types of polymerization techniques including controlled and living techniques:

  • Controlled (living) anionic polymerization
  • Controlled (living) cationic polymerization
  • Group Transfer polymerization
  • Radical polymerization
  • Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP)
  • Reversible Addition-Fragmentation Chain Transfer (RAFT)
  • Suspension polymerization
  • Emulsion polymerization
