Characterization of Concentrated Systems: Constraint and Compressibility Effects

  • Juan A. Menjivar

While the rheology of isolated macromolecules in dilute solutions has been extensively studied, concentrated macromolecular systems have received little theoretical consideration.1 Theories developed for isolated macromolecules are usually not applicable to concentrated solutions, mainly because factors such as; intermolecular interactions, spacial constraints, molecular entanglements and aggregation are not considered.1 These factors are interdependent and their effects need to be analyzed and considered.
