For PVC, each repeat Molecular Weight Mean Mi unit consists of two carbon atoms, three hydrogen atoms, and a single chloRange ( g/mol ) ( g/mol ) wi wiMi rine atom (Table 14.3). Furthermore, the atomic weights of C, H, and Cl are, 5,000–10,000 7,500 150 respectively, 12.01, 1.01, and 35.45 g/mol.0.02 for PVC Thus, 10,000–15,000 15,000–20,000 g/mol 2 m 2 1 12.01 20,000–25,000 62.50 25,000–30,000g/mol 30,000–35,000 and 35,000–40,000 12,500 17,500 3 1 1.01 g/mol 2 22,500 27,500 32,500 37,500 DP Mn m 0.10 0.18 35.45 g/mol 0.29 0.26 0.13 0.02 21,150 g/mol 62.50 g/mol Mw 338 1250 3150 6525 7150 4225 750 23,200 Lecture 20-21 Two Ways to Count Chains/Measure MW: Amount of Polymer ¯ Number-Average M General Trends of the Distribution: N Weight-Average ¯ Mw Since the weight-average puts a large emphasis on the higher molecular weight there is a: • Shift of the peak to the right and broadening of the distribution • Decrease in the peak height as compared to the number-average Molecular Weight → Polydispersity Index (PDI) ~ 2 -50 PDI play a role in injection molding!
