Abstract

The dynamic property of a polymer chain is important in understanding the macroscopic physical properties. The molecular motion of polymer chains in dilute solution consists of the Rouse mode and segmental mode. The relaxation time of the former is in the sub-microsecond to millisecond order and that of the latter is in the nano- and subnano-second order. The nature of segmental motion has been extensively studied [1–3], but still the details remain unknown.
