The bootstrap model was proposed by Harwood to explain copolymer sequence distribution which is dependent only on copolymer composition in solvents which cause changes in the apparent reactivity ratios for a number of pairs of monomers. This work presents an explicit formulation of the equations describing copolymer composition and sequence distribution in terms of the bootstrap model for both the simple Mayo-Lewis model and the penultimate unit model. Inspection of these equations reveals the necessary and sufficient conditions for sequence distribution to be a function only of copolymer composition. The results of copolymerizations of styrene with methyl methacrylate and with maleic anhydride under various conditions are interpreted in terms of the bootstrap model.
