The possible polymers are: cis‐1,4‐polyisoprene ( ) trans‐1,4‐polyisoprene ) ( 1,2‐polyisoprene (may be atactic, syndiotactic, or isotactic) ) ( 3,4‐polyisoprene (may be atactic, syndiotactic, or isotactic) ) ( Thus there are a total of 8 different structures possible for polyisoprene. 4. a. First we need the DP so that we know the number of bonds: , , / 9615 / Note that there are 2 bonds for each repeat unit: 〈〉

213 b. For this we need to use the equation: / 〈〉 and since we are told this is a theta solvent, there are no excluded volume effects and what we are calculating is actually <r0>2. Also, we are given that: . 8 ∗ 10
Combining these equations we get: ∗ 〈〉

725 c. The characteristic ratio is the ratio of the actual square end‐to‐end distance (answer to part b) divided by nl2 (the answer to part a). Doing this gives a characteristic ratio of 11.6 (7252/2132). ...
