Each of the systems that we have designed and built under this category of projects can be described by reference to one of the following polymerization processes:
Bulk or block polymerization
This process is the simplest in terms of formulation, and is conducted in the absence of any solvent or dispersant. A monomer, polymer and initiator are the only components. Applications include most step-growth and many chain-growth polymers.
Decaffeination is the process of removing caffeine from materials such as coffee beans, tea leaves, kola nuts and cocoa beans. Over the years, dozens of decaffeination methods have been developed and tested, and some have been commercialized with varying degrees of success. Most of these methods fall into one of the following three categories:
