Characterization of complex polymers of poly(styrene) and poly(acrylate) by thermal field-flow fractionation with light scattering and other detection
Polymers are an important class of materials, with applications in medicine, construction, personal care, textiles, safety, packaging, and still other fields. Their properties are derived from their chemical compositions and architectures. Advances in their synthesis have led to chemical compositions of more than one component in various arrangements and architectures that yield configurations that go beyond linear polymers to form stars, bottlebrushes, rings, dendrimers, pom-poms and others. The large sizes of polymers pose special challenges for characterization which are further complicated ...
