An Analysis of Polymer Branching Using Triple-Detection GPC / SEC
Polymer branching can have a considerable effect on the physical properties of synthesised polymers, including the disruption of crystallinity and increasing chain entanglements and single chain density.
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).
