BTU of Styrene Monomer
« on: January 16, 2018, 01:00:02 PM »
Hello, I am new to this group and have a question regarding BTU.

I am trying to know the BTU value of styrene monomer and a few others.  Most items are easily found but this one has me stumped.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Your question is vague but the possible answers are easy to find with google.

Are you looking for the heat of reaction (polymerisation) or the heat of combustion of styrene?

Do you want this amount of energy expressed in BTU per mole of styrene, per weight of styrene or per volume of styrene?

I know BTU as a heat unit. It can measure many processes, like a combustion for instance. If this is what you're looking for, better search
styrene "heat of combustion"
or "combustion enthalpy"
get the value in whatever unit and convert it in BTU. Example there

BTU is needed for calculating time needed to burn/destruct the vapor space remaining in a styrene monomer tank.
