Quantitative characterization of a polystyrene/poly(alpha-methylstyrene) blend by MALDI mass spectrometry and size-exclusion chromatography.

Abstract

The use of coupled size-exclusion chromatography and MALDI mass spectrometry for quantitative measurement of the composition of technical polymer blends at the molecular level is described. The method is illustrated with a model binary blend consisting of polystyrene and poly(alpha-methylstyrene), both polymers having similar molecular weights and… (More)
