(i) the monomer dsiappear in the very eraly stage of the reaction (ii) a relatively slow increase in molecular weigth of the polymer (iii) Rate constant (kp) is independent of the reaction time and polymer molecular weight In general, it is true until the polymer having very high molecular weight (iv) The successful synthesis of high polymers (M n > 10,000 g/mole) requires equal moles of two functional groups and high conversion (> 99%)...
