In this paper we present a simple analysis of the thermodynamic properties of solutions of polar polymers. It is found that:(a) In the dilute solution regime, a cluster analysis identical with that used in the theory of solutions of nonpolar polymers can be developed, but with the thermodynamic parameter z now dependent on the dipole moment, dielectric constant, etc.(b) In the concentrated solution regime, a continuum theory can be developed based on the assumption of uniform mixing of polymer… CONTINUE READING
