The dispersion polymerization of vinylidene fluoride in supercritical carbon dioxide is investigated using two ammonium carboxylate perfluoropolyether stabilizers of different molecular weights. Under suitable operating conditions a polymer made of well-dispersed spherical particles has been obtained up to relatively high conversion. The experimental data of polymerization rate and molecular weight distribution are in good agreement with the predictions of a model previously developed. Such an agreement supports the conclusion that the polymerization kinetics is dominated by the interphase transport of the active radicals between the continuous phase and the polymer particles.
