Magnetic Relaxation of Poly-γ-Benzyl-L-Glutamate Solutions in Deuterochloroform

  • B. M. Fung

For liquid and liquid crystalline solutions of poly-γ-benzyl-L-glutamate (PBLG) in deuterochloroform, the spin-lattice relaxation time (T1) of deuterium in CDCl3 is strongly dependent upon temperature and concentration, while the proton T1 of PBLG has no concentration dependence and only a small temperature dependence. The data are analyzed based upon a model in which highly associated and bulk solvent molecules are in chemical exchange, and its validity is discussed.
