Thermodynamjc Interactions in Dilute Polymer Solutions : the Virial Coefficients

  • EDWARD F. CASASSA
  • Published 2007
The statistical thermodynamics of dilute polymer solutions is reviewed from the point of view of the continuum theory based on molecular distribution functions. The comparatively rigorous perturbation treatment of the second and third virial coefficients, and various approximate theories derived from it to give closed-form expressions useful for good… CONTINUE READING
