Measurement of solubility parameters by gas-liquid chromatrography

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Gas-liquid chromatography has been used to calculate thermodynamic data for a variety of probe molecules in three polymers at 25°C. The method of Guillet and co-workers has been applied to calculate solubility parameters, σ, and good agreement was found with literatue values. The results avoid extrapolation from higher temperatures and add further validity to the method. Discussion of the role of σ in polymer solution thermodynamics is also given.
