Abstract

It is postulated that the solvent viscosity as measured in the neat solvent is not the appropriate quantity to account for the solvent contribution to the solution properties. This postulate was shown to be strongly supported by direct measurement of changes in solvent friction with the added polymer. The topics discussed include solvent relaxation by oscillatory electric birefringence; and solvent diffusion. The solution properties of polystyrene and polybutadiene are also discussed.
