A kinetic model has been developed to predict the temperature and conversion behavior of the photopolymerization of Dodecyl Acrylate for use in the TIPMPS flight investigation. Isothermal photo- DSC was used to estimate the polymerization constants for use in the model. Using Arrhenius reaction kinetics we have found that this model provides rather accurate predictions for the temperature and conversion in the course of the adiabatic photopolymerization reaction. © 2003 by John A.
