For the first time, special force field ReaxFF was applied for describing the process of polymer net-works synthesis and all-atom computer simulation of intermolecular polystyrene crosslinking was carried out. Also in the framework of all-atom simulations density, specific inner surface area, thermal expansion coefficient of the network specimens with different crosslinking degree were calculated. Results are in agreement with experimental data.
