The gel points in selected models of network polymerization


Methods used to predict the conversion that produces a gel are discussed for homopolymerization of a three-functional monomer. Two classical types of models are characterized in detail; they serve to model static and kinetic network simulations using various pseudoclassical (with a fixed or with an in situ determined value of cyclization parameter a) and percolation (lattice and off-lattice) models are intercompared with those obtained from the so-called classical models. The assumptions are discussed that, in the models used, affect the gel point most effectively.
