What is it about?

This paper uses fluorescence excitation spectroscopy to determine the phase diagram of polystyrene, which then allows us to determine the molecular size as a function of molecular weight.

Why is it important?

Understanding the phase diagram and molecular size to molecular weight relationship of polymers is essential to their use in formulations.


This paper makes a nice pair with our more recent work on diffusion NMR as methods for polymer analysis.
