    Molecular weight and polymer solution

    2.1 Weight average molecular weight and number average molecular weight

    Molecular weight is a variable that is particularly important because direct contact with the physical

    properties of polymers. In general, polymers with higher molecular weight are more powerful, but (as

    will be shown in the net chapter! that is too high molecular weight bias causes difficulties in

    processing. "ow to define a molecular weight of the polymer in #uestion and the epected

    application. In this chapter will be presented the definitions of molecular weight and molecular weight

    distribution determination method in a polymer sample. We will provide a discussion of the molecular

    structure of the polymer, because the solubility is a prere#uisite for the determination of molecular


    Mentioned that the polymers are compounds with high molecular weight, but we must start with the

    #uestion, how do we interpret the high molecular weight$ %ntil that limit rendan molecular weightand molecular weight ranging how high$ &ot easy to answer, because what constitute the molecular

    weight of the 'low', for eample, for a sample of polyethylene, may be ideal for polyamide samples.

    Moreover, some polymers deliberately made with a low molecular weight (even as oligomers! to

    facilitate the initial process, the molecular weight increases the level of the net process. ut in

    general, the polymers are considered as having a molecular weight ranging from thousands to

    millions, with the optimum molecular weight depends on the chemical structure and its application.

    )inyl polymers that have commercial value usually has a molecular weight between 1*+ to 1*.

    -olymers having functional groups are very polar, such as polyamides, may have a low molecular

    weight ranging from 1+,*** to 2*,***.

    o define the molecular weight compounds are simple (nonpolimeri/!, we use the techni#uescommonly /nown as mass spectrometry, the free0ing point depression (/rios/op!, the boiling point

    elevation (ebulliometri! and when present functional groups are suitable, titration (for eample,

    neutrali0ation, or saponification!. "owever, the determination of the molecular weight of the

    polymers is much more comple by the following two basic reasons. irst, in a polymeri0ation

    process, in fact it would not be possible if all of the growing polymer chain ends (berterminasi! with

    vesar or similar chain length therefore one needs to treat the average molecular weight. (3ome natural

    polymer having a molecular weight typically have a legal eception to this!. 3econd, the techni#ues of

    /rios/opi, ebulliometri, and titration only effectively applied to polymers with relatively low

    molecular weight methods must be more sophisticated to polymers with higher molecular weight of

    4*,***. Conventional techni#ues of mass spectrometry is not much more used in the field beyond thecharacteri0ation of polymer5related products of polymer degradation products because of the

    re#uirements for sample measurement is volatile. 6ately it has been found ebberapa eciting new

    developments in the

    field desorption mass spectrometry has epanded into the area of macromolecules. "owever, such

    developments are still in the early phase (growth! and do not have regular use of the methods in a

    more traditional molecular weight determination.

    he techni#ues are more commonly used for polymer molecular weight determination is osmometri,

    light scattering (light scattering!, and ultracentrifugation, although titration (end group analysis!,

    /rios/opi, and ebulliometri also used in some applications. 1.2 he most convenient method for

    routine determination of molecular weight measurement involves vis/opsitas solution, but this is not

    an absolute method and can only be used in con7unction with any of the techni#ues of measurement of

    absolute molecular weight.

    Molecular weight values obtained depend on the magnitude of the si0e of the measurement method.

    he method relies on the analysis of end groups or colligative properties (free0ing point depression,

    the boiling point elevation, osmotic pressure! results in what is /nown as the average molecular

    weight of numbers or a number because the number of molecules of each of the respective weight of

    the sample is calculated. he total weight of a polymer sample,w, is the total weight of each species

    of molecules that eist8

    used as an indication of the width of the molecular weight of a polymer sample. his ratio is called

    polymer solubility and interaction 5 solvent.

    2.2 3olution polimer;

    >issolving a polymer is not the same as dissolving compound having a low molecular weight because

    of the dimensions are very different between the solvent and the polymer molecules. >issolution of

    the polymer occurs in two stages. 9t first solvent molecules diffuse across the polymer matri to form

    a mass called a bulging and solvated gel. (9 student who closes a flas/ containing organic solvents

    with a rubber cap surely see for yourself the effects of development coupled with gel formation !. In

    the second stage, the gel brea/s (divorce5divorce! and the molecules are dispersed into a true solution.

    >issolution is often a slow process. While some types of polymers can be dissolved rapidly in certain

    solvents, other polymers may re#uire long periods of heating near the melting point of the polymer.&etwor/ polymers can not be dissolved, but usually swollen (ballooned! in the presence of solvent.

    ?ven some linear polymers can not be dissolved in any manner whatsoever, hence the lac/ of

    solubility of the polymer does not necessarily mean that the person concerned is a type of polymer


    "ow does one choose a solvent$ he easiest way is to chec/ on a polymer handbook, in which

    accumulated abundant list of solvents and nonpelarut for various types of polymers. 4a detailed study

    of the solubility of the polymer using the principles of thermodynamics have melhir/an semiempiris

    herefore, predictions based on the discovery of the solubility of the solvent and the polymer

    ecause polymers have negligible vapor pressure, the easiest method is to use to determine the molar

    the consideration of intermolecular forces. wo sets of these numeric values (denoted by G! have been

    proposed, one by 3mall, + which is derived from the heat of vapori0ation, and the other by "oy,

    which is based on the vapor pressure measurements. Gvalues are given in able 2.1 is typical. It is

    clear that there is a significant difference between the values proposed by 3mall and "oy. 3ets which

    are used are usually determined by the method used to determine the value of the solvent.

    or conditions other than the theta temperature, the e#uation has the form

    Where a is a constant which changes depending on the polymer, solvent, and temperature. Dnown as

    theMark-ouwink e!uation-"akurada, this e#uation is important that, as we will see later in 3ection

    2.+, is used to connect the viscosity of the a#ueous solution with molecular weight.

    In addition to the determination of molecular weight, practical considerations are important to muncil

    of solubility effects. When someone moves in the direction of solvent 'good' to 'bad', and

    intramolecular forces become more important, the polymer molecules shrin/ in volume. his

    compactness rising birth reduced 'shrin/age' and therefore the solution viscosity becomes lower. he

    2 In a linear polymer end groups are sebanbya/ two linear molecules.
