Example on reverse engineering Number average molecular weight: = i i n M w M 1 (Eq. 1.6, pg. 13 Y&L) Weight average molecular weight: ( ) = i i n M w M (Eq. 1.7, pg. 13 Y&L) Company A 1 = 0.5 M 1 = 20,000 g/mol 2 = 0.5 M 2 = 100,000 g/mol g/mol 3 . 333 , 33 000 , 100 5 . 000 , 20 5 . 1 = + = n n M M ( ) ( ) g/mol 000 , 60 100,000 0.5 000 , 20 5 . = + = w w M M Company A 1 = x M 1 = 20,000 g/mol 2 = x M 2 = 100,000 g/mol 3 = 1-2x M 3 = 1,000,000 g/mol 1 58 000 , 000 , 1 000 , 000 , 1 2x- 1 10x 50x 1 000 , 000 , 1 2 1 000 , 100 000 , 20 1 + = + + =- + + = x M x x x M n n ( ) ( ) ( ) x M x x x M w w 1,880,000- 1,000,000 1,000,000 2- 1 100,000 000 , 20 = + + = (a) 5% increase in M n : 1.05 x 33,333 = 35,000 g/mol x M w 1,880,000- 1,000,000 = 4754 . 1 58 000 , 000 , 1 000 , 35 = + = x x CHE 178 Problem Set #2 Solutions 2 ( ) 0493 . 4754 . 2 1 3 =- = (b) 5% increase in M w 4984 . 1,880,000- 1,000,000 0000 , 63 = = x x ( ) 0032 . 4984 . 2 1 3 =- = (c) I would make the M w measurements since it is more sensitive to the component of interest. M w allows for the determination of a much smaller weight fraction of the 1,000,000 g/mol polymer (0.0032 << 0.0493). If the amount were less than ~5 wt%, it would not be detected by the M n measurement. CHE 178 Problem Set #2 Solutions 3 2a.
