Viscometric Study of PC / PEG blends in THF solvent and Gamma-Rays Effect on the Viscosity of PC

Abstract

In this research the intermolecular interaction between polycarbonate (PC) and polyethyleneglycol (PEG) in tetrahydrofuran (THF) solvent was studied, at 25˚C using a dilute solution viscometry method (DSV).The reduced viscosity and intrinsic viscosity and viscosity interaction parameter (b) were experimentally measured, we also discuss the compatility of a polymer mixture in terms of , and the effect of gamma-rays on the reduced viscosity and intrinsic viscosity and Huggins constant of (PC). The results show that the relation between and C is liner within C=(0.9-2)g/dl, and viscometric constant KH decreases with irradiation time while increases with Tirr.
