- ‘Achieving polydispersities lower than 1.15 for high polymers is generally extremely difficult.’
- ‘These are high polymers with a degree of polymerization of 15,000 or above, and molecular weights of two million or higher.’
- ‘When it is desired to express the results of solution viscosity measurements upon a high polymer as a molecular weight, the viscosity average molecular weight M is used.’
