Application

  • Copolymerization of butadiene and styrene under the influence of n-butyllithium: This study explores the copolymerization process using n-butyllithium as a catalyst, which is significant for the development of new synthetic rubber materials (V Bronskaya et al., 2023).
  • Modifiers of n-Butyllithium in the Synthesis of Polybutadiene and Styrene-Butadiene Rubbers: Explores the use of n-butyllithium with different modifiers in the synthesis of industrial rubbers, important for understanding the control of polymer properties (VS Glukhovskoi et al., 2014).
  • Aggregation and Solvation of n-Butyllithium: Examines the aggregation behavior and solvation properties of n-butyllithium in various solvents, providing insights into its chemical interactions essential for organic synthesis (O Tai et al., 2017).
