Abstract An outline is presented a general theory which provides prescriptions for the time evolution of the copolymer composition and copolymer sequence distributions (CSD) in terms of rate coefficients for microscopic events such a homo- and cross-propagation, -termination and -transfer. Such an extension is clearly worthwhile if it enables one to quantitatively describe properties which would be expected to differ from those expected from a single average of emulsion homopolymerization properties, or from an equivalent bulk polymerization: nonsteady-state properties here are particularly important. Results indicate new methods whereby emulsion copolymerization systems can be used to create formed polymers with prescribed characteristics.
