Spectroscopic Techniques

Polymers have molecular weight, composition, and chain configuration. The molecular weight directly affects the physical properties of the polymer. To optimize the end-use properties, the polymer has to be adjusted. Characterization of the distributed molecular properties is the key to tailoring and optimizing a polymeric material. Hence an accurate knowledge of polydispersity is important because it influences the physical properties of polymers [13].

Applications of polymers can benefit from a clear understanding of molecular and structural parameters that control technological performance. Polymers are used to produce a great many versatile structures with a wide range of properties [4], and the molecular ...
