A method is presented for selecting a polyvinyl alcohol as a stabilizing agent for suspension polymerization without carrying out the polymerization reaction. This method is demonstrated for polymerization of water- insoluble and water-soluble monomers. Here the stability of the non-reacting suspension is used to predict the stability of the same system, when it is reacting.
Key Words : Polymerization, colloidal suspension, polyvinyl alcohol, monomers.
