Abstract: The morphological stability of initially formed polymer particles against air was improved in order to study the initial morphology development with Zigler-Natta catalyst olefin polymerization. The stopped-flow polymerization technique was applied to synthesize initial polymer particles in combination with various quenching and stabilizing procedures. When polymerizing particles were quenched with cold heptane maintained at -65°C under N_2 or CO_2, the exposure of the formed particles to air caused the fast formation of cracks on the surface, leading to serious reformation of the particle shape. However, when the particles were quenched with cold heptane under CO_2 and washed with heptane containing an appropriate amount oftetrahydrofuran, the particle morphology was significantly stabilized which hardly changed even after 1 h exposure to air. The established stabilizing procedure is highly useful for various characterizations of the initially formed particles.
