Analytical expressions for the average molecular weights of randomly branched polymer molecules with any primary chain distribution are developed. A full molecular weight distribution (MWD) function is also derived for the case where primary chains conform to the most probable distribution. This MWD function can be separated into the fractional MWDs containing k branch points ; therefore, very detailed information on the structure of randomly branched polymers can be obtained. The average… CONTINUE READING
