Polymerization reactions are generally fast after initiation and required to be quickly quenched to avoid polymer branching or other side reactions. Polymer production requires catalysts, reactions under pressure at a high temperature, and experimentation often occurs in the gas phase. For experimental development, there are many conditions to test and monitor. Ideally those tests are performed on small scale and in parallel. Figuring out the optimal conditions for each step in the creation of a new polymer can be a huge challenge and eats up a lot of time.
