Autoacceleration

Autoacceleration (Gel Effect, Trommsdorff-Norrish Effect) is a dangerous reaction behavior that can occur in free radical polymerization systems. It is due to the localized increases in viscosity of the polymerizing system that slow termination reactions. The removal of reaction obstacles therefore causes a rapid increase in the overall rate of re...
