Physical Properties of Polymers Polymer: The dispersity measures heterogeneity of sizes of molecules or particles in the mix-ture. The mixture is called monodisperse if the molecules have the same size, shape, or mass. If the molecules in the mixture have an inconsistent size, shape and mass distri-bution, the mixture is called polydisperse.

The natural polymers are generally. Polymers and its applications 1. POLYMERS by s. kavya cy (pharmaceutics) i-year srmc & ri 2. Polymer” word On the Size & Shape of Polymers & Polymer Complexes book derived from Greek roots “Poly” meaning many and “Meros” meaning parts.

Definition: Polymers are long chain organic molecules assembled from many smaller molecules called as monomers. In case a polymer would have more than one kind of repeat units in its chain molecular structure, it is called a copolymer.

Polymers of the molecular weight range 1, – 20, are commonly called low polymers and those having molecular > 20, are commonly referred to as high polymers. Length to Diameter (L/D) Ratio. The exponent of the molecular mass dependence of the size of a randomly branched polymer, as given by eqn [88], is larger than 1/3, which assures a decrease in the average intramolecular concentration c branched * ≅ N/R branched 3 as a function of remark that eqns [86] and [88] give the scaling dependences for the dimensions of randomly branched polymers averaged over different.

In addition to polymer composites that are introduced in this chapter, important types of modified polymer systems include polymer–polymer blends and polymeric foams.

Types and Components of Polymer Composites Polymer composites are mixtures of polymers with inorganic or. In contrast, in the case of irradiation of suspension of triple polymer/metal complex, formation of small nanoparticles (ca. 2 nm) with narrow size distribution was observed by TEM. Since the triple polymer metal complexes were formed as a suspension, it was not possible to record UV–vis spectra for these samples due to opacity.

Finally, a two-step free shape recovery process was designed, and the good modeling result clearly shows that this model can be used to design complex shape recovery processes for amorphous polymers.

Although the present model is a 1-D small strain model, it can be extended to a 3D finite-deformation constitutive relation. Polymers are mainly characterized by molar mass, chemical composition, functionality and architecture. The determination of the complex structure of polymers by chromatographic and spectroscopic methods is one of the major concerns of polymer analysis and.

Shape-memory polymers (SMPs) are an emerging class of active materials, which are able to change their shape in a predefined way upon appropriate SMPs can switch from a temporary to their permanent shape they are dual-shape materials.
