An Analysis of Polymer Branching Using GPC / SEC Methodology
Polymer branching has been proven to have a potentially considerable impact on many physical properties of synthesised polymers, such as the disruption of crystallinity and a possible increase in single chain density and chain entanglements.
Understanding polymer branching and its effects on a polymer’s end-use properties can help avoid failures and improve specifications.
This paper describes the GPC (or equivalently SEC) analysis of branching in polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP).
