The Determination of Thermodynamic Properties of Polymer Solutions by Finite-Concentration Gas Chromatography

G. J. Price, J. E. Guillet

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Although the technique of gas chromatography has been widely used to study polymer properties and to obtain information on polymer solution thermodynamics, few workers have extended their results beyond infinite dilution of solvent, Finite-concentration gas chromatography has been used to study several poly (dimethylsi1oxane)- solvent systems at 25ºC. The results are in good agreement with those obtained by traditional vapor sorption methods. A comparison of the various available techniques has been made, and the advantages and disadvantages of each are discussed.
