A Simple, Inexpensive Molecular Weight Measurement for Water-Soluble Polymers Using Microemulsions.
Mathias, Lon J.; Moore, D. Roger
Journal of Chemical Education, v62 n6 p545-48 Jun 1985
Describes an experiment involving use of a microemulsion and its characteristic thermal phase change to determine molecular weights of polyoxyethylene samples. The experiment provides students with background information on polymers and organized media and with experience in evaluating polymer molecular weight by using a unique property of a low-dimensional composition.
