Abstract

Disclosed is a rate enhanced free radical moderated polymerization process for the preparation of thermoplastic resin or resins comprising: heating a mixture comprised of a free radical initiator, a stable free radical agent, at least one polymerizable monomer compound, and a sulfonic acid salt polymerization rate enhancing compound, to form a thermoplastic resin or resins with a high monomer to polymer conversion and a narrow polydispersity .
