The intrinsic viscosities and the slopes of ηsp/C against C were estimated for natural rubber, polystyrene, and polyisobutene in hydrocarbon and high mol.wt. alkyl ester solvents. Whereas no correlation could be established between slopes and c.e.d. (cohesive energy-densities) balance of the systems, the plot of [η] versus δ, the solubility parameters of the solvents, yielded smooth curves similar to those obtained by plotting swelling coefficients against δ. GEE's method of estimating δp from swelling coefficients, was therefore extended to estimate δp from viscosity measurements. The present values of δp are in good agreement with those obtained by swelling measurements.Die STAUDINGER-Indices (Intrinsic-Viskositten) und die Neigungen der Kurven der Funktion ηsp/c = f(c) von natürlichem Kautschuk, Polystyrol und Polyisobutylen in Kohlenwasserstoffen und höhermolekularen Alkylestern als Lösungsmittel wurden bestimmt. Falls keine Beziehung zwischen den Neigungen und dem Kohsionsenergiedichte-Gleichgewicht der Systeme gefunden wurde, gab die Auftragung von [η] gegen δ, den Löslichkeitsparametern der Lösungsmittel, glatte Kurven. Diese sind hnlich jenen, die man beim Auftragen der Quellungskoeffizienten gegen δ erhlt. Deshalb wurde GEEs Methode der Bestimmung von δp aus den Quellungskoeffizienten zur Bestimmung von δp aus Viskosittsmessungen erweitert. Die gefundenen Werte von δp stimmen gut mit jenen aus Quellungsmessungen erhaltenen überein.

    • "Hansen's [5] study of solubility parameter concepts can be used to interpret relations involved in liquid miscibility, polymer solubility, polymer compatibility, adsorption on solid surfaces, dispersion phenomena, solubility of inorganic and organic materials in organic liquids, and " salting in " phenomena in biological molecules. Mangarj [6] was the first author to work with intrinsic viscosities relating it the Hildebrand and Hansen solubility parameters. Bozdogan [7] applied the intrinsic viscosity-temperature data of polystyrene (PS) fractions in decalin, cyclohexane, dioctyl phthalate and toluene solutions in theta temperatures, and obtained solubility parameters.

    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The behavior of bovine serum albumin (BSA) in water is scarcely studied, and the thermodynamic properties arising from the experimental measurements have not been reported. Intrinsic viscosity measurements are very useful in assessing the interaction between the solute and solvent. This work discussed in a simple determination of the enthalpy of BSA in aqueous solution when the concentration ranges from 0.2 to 36.71% wt. and the temperature from 35 to C. The relationship between the concentration and intrinsic viscosity is determined according to the method of Huggins. The temperature increase reduces the ratio between inherent viscosity and concentration (). This is reflected in the Van't Hoff curve. Furthermore, this work proposes hydrodynamic cohesion value as an indicator of the degree of affinity of protein with water and thermodynamic implications in conformational changes.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A series of AB and BAB type poly(styrene-4-vinylpyridine) diblock copolymers with a sharp distribution of molecular weights were synthesized to study relationships between the molecular weight and domain size of lamellar and spherical microdomains. The domain sizes of diblock copolymer specimens cast from chloroform or 1,1,2-trichloroethane were estimated from transmission electron micrographs. As a result, the lameller domain spacings, predicted from Halfand's theory, agree well with the experimental results. The radius of spherical domains is far below the theoretical values predicted from Helfand's theory, though.
