Gary Poehlein

Emeritus Professor

Dr. Poehlein's research interests are primarily related to heterogeneous polymerization systems such as emulsion and dispersion polymerization. Specific research projects have included the modeling the utilization of steady-state continuous stirred-tank reactors for fundamental kinetic studies; examination of the nature of the reactive species formed in the water phase when emulsion copolymerization is carried with one water-soluble monomer; determination of the effectiveness of chain transfer agents in emulsion polymerization; analysis of reaction rates in the two phases of dispersion polymerization; the use of polymeric stabilizers in emulsion polymerization; and free radical grafting reactions.
