The structural characterization of copolymers by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOFMS) remains a challenging task, since their random comonomer distribution creates very complicated mass spectra. In this study, a high-resolution TOF mass spectrometer with a spiral ion trajectory was applied to the(More)
To evaluate chemical compositions and heterogeneity of comonomer sequences in methyl methacrylate (MMA)-tert-butyl methacrylate (TBMA) copolymers, multivariate analysis was applied to the 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra of the carbonyl, backbone quaternary and a-methyl carbons of the copolymers. A better linear relationship was found between(More)
Correlations between chemical compositions and chromatographic retention times (Rt) of methacrylate random copolymers were studied by liquid chromatography electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS). Twenty-six different polymers including homopolymers of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), poly(tert-butyl methacrylate) (PTBMA) and(More)
In this paper, we report multivariate analyses, such as principal component analysis and partial least-squares regression, of NMR spectra of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)s [poly(NIPAAm)s]. Principal component analysis successfully interpreted the assignments of NMR spectra of poly(NIPAAm)s in terms of stereostructures for the methine carbons at triad levels(More)
