Abstract

The kinetic model of stepwise polymerization is revisited, with some adaptations for its application to the kinetics of oriented attachment of nanoparticles in colloidal suspensions, which results in the formation of anisotropic particles. A comparison with experimental data reported in the literature shows good agreement with the model and supports comparisons with other systems.
