They obtained predictions for the various rheological functions, expressed in terms of the spectrum of conformational relaxation times, τ i , which depend on the strength of the hydrodynamic interaction. 39) where S = τ i /τ 1 and τ 1 is the longest relaxation time. 369. In reality, Eq. 23), with molar mass independent values of K and a can only be applied at relatively high molecular weights, M. 5◦ C. (From Abe et al. [1993a], with permission. ) relationship generally exists. Moreover, the nature of this relationship depends not only on solvent quality, but also on the microstructure of the polymer.

Here we focus on this Newtonian regime, ˙ Ψ (γ), ˙ and Ψ (γ), ˙ become independent of γ, ˙ and we can expect that the where η(γ), viscometric behavior is related to the equilibrium macromolecular structure. 2 Concentration-Dependent Regimes of Viscometric Behavior Our discussion of viscometric properties of polymer solutions is organized into four concentration regimes: isolated chains (the limit of infinite dilution) and dilute, semidilute, and concentrated solutions. The first two refer to situations where the chains are, respectively, noninteracting and weakly interacting via direct as well as indirect (hydrodynamic) interactions.

The molecular origin of this apparent discrepancy will be discussed in the next section. 2 Flory–Fox Equation Based on the Kirkwood–Riseman theory, if polymer chains are nondraining, it follows [Kirkwood and Riseman, 1948; Auer and Gardner, 1955] that intrinsic viscosity data can be related to the radius of gyration, Rg , of flexible polymers. 40) where FF is a phenomenological constant, which, in view of Eq. , to (RH,η /Rg )3 , where RH,η is the hydrodynamic radius, determined as Vh = (4π/3)R3H,η ].
