Full characterization would require the width of the molecular weight distribution, as well. This makes the distinct difference between the meaning of molecular weight in the case of macromolecules and the constant unique values of molecular weight for small molecules. Another complexity comes from the choice of the mode of averaging. As is well known in statistics, there are many ways of averaging, while in a heterogeneous ensemble each average has a different value. ” In polymer science, this is termed Degree of Polymerization (DP).

One may assume that the product [ p ] M is associated with the volume of the chain. This assumption will be undertaken in a later discussion of MWD utilizing a size separation technique (GPC). 3 Molecular Weights and Their Distribution eter (mostly made of glass) which determines the flow times of the pure solvent and those of the polymer solution at various concentrations (in the diluted region). The ratio of flow times, between the polymer solution and the pure solvent, approximates the viscosity ratio (relativeviscosity, pr) The term psp (specific viscosity) expresses the relative contribution of the polymer to the viscosity of the solution.

This line represents the unique case where r, = r2 = 1, which leads to Y = X in Equation 2-67, or F, = f, in Equation 2-68. In this unrealistic case, the composition of the copolymer is identical to that of the monomer mixture. Another extreme case is described wherein rl = r2 = 0, which means that none of the monomers is polymerizable by itself, and yet a copolymer is obtained. 5 (always 50% of each component). This structure, named alternating, may be identified upon examining the chain: ABABABABAB as there is no way to produce AA or BB bonds.
