Abstract

A straightforward and rapid method for the determination of Mark–Houwink constants from GPC and viscometry is described. A single original polymer is sufficient since other samples were prepared by sonication. The use of a number of samples in this way is shown to improve the accuracy over determinations where only two polymer samples are used.
