Control of end use properties of branched polymers such as low-density Polyethylene (IdPE) produced at industrial scale is difficult at the molecular level since experimental techniques fail to detect the most decisive microstructural properties. Mathematical models are important in predicting the interesting microstructural properties of polymers. Nazila Yanghini provides reliable multi-dimensional models of IdPE accounting for chain length, degree of branching and combination points as dimensions.
