George Jalics: Randomizers for use in solution polymerizations. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Alvin T Rockhill, March 3, 1987: US04647634 (29 worldwide citation)

It has been determined that metal salts of certain phenolic type antioxidants act as randomizers in the solution polymerization of conjugated diolefin monomers with copolymerizable vinyl aromatic monomers. These randomizers do not increase the vinyl content of polymers made in polymerizations which ...

Adel F Halasa, George Jalics: Siloxane containing network polymer. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Alvin T Rockhill, October 21, 1986: US04618650 (23 worldwide citation)

Metals from groups I and II are commonly used to catalyze the polymerization of monomers into polymers. The polymers formed in such polymerizations are terminated with the metal used to catalyze the polymerization and are sometimes referred to as living polymers. Such polymers can be crosslinked to ...
