Molecular Weight Dependence of Network Length Scales in Polymer Solutions
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2006
The generality of the blob concept using solutions of styrene chains with different molecular weights was investigated. It was found that the correlation lengths and their concentration dependence dramatically change for nondilute solutions with the decrease in chains of molecular weight. It was observed that these changes lead to new structures of the chain networks. The results show that chain networks also change with the decrease in the number of Kuhn segments.
