Application Note: Near-Infrared Analysis of Polyols: Process Monitoring in Rough Environments
19 April 2013

During polymerization, real-time determination of hydroxyl and acid numbers of polyols provide important information about molecular weight and the reaction end point. This application note highlights the practical aspects of process monitoring in a polyol batch process using NIRS methodology. Real-time process monitoring with NIRS is the key to lower production costs and better product quality.
