3.2 Thermodynamics of Polymer Solutions Why are polymer solutions important? Molecular characterization Media for polymerization Polymer processing (fibers, blends) Polymer application (paints, adhesives) Excepted from Prof. E Kumacheva Notes Will a given polymer dissolve in a particular solvent? Will a given polymer mix with another polymer?
