High Temperature Light Scattering of Synthetic Polymers: A Practice Guide
Charles M. Guttman, J R. Maurey
The characterization of polymeric materials certified as NIST Standard Reference Materials, to provide such standards to science and industry, has continued at the NIST over an interval of four decades. Characterization of polyethylene SRM's by high temperature light scattering has been a major part of this effort. Since that initial effort, several improvements have been made in the process of conducting light scattering experiments with these polyolefin solutions at high temperature. This practice guide describes the current recommended procedure used to determine the molecular mass of polyethylenes in solution at high temperature.
