The dielectric relaxation process of water was investigated for polymer/water mixtures containing poly(vinyl methyl ether), poly(ethyleneimine), poly(vinyl alcohol), and poly(vinylpyrrolidone) with a polymer concentration of up to 40 wt % at frequencies between 10 MHz and 10 GHz in subzero temperatures down to -55 degrees C. These polymer/water mixtures have a crystallization temperature TC of water at -10 to -2 degrees C. Below TC, part of the water crystallized and another part of the water… CONTINUE READING
