Presentation Transcript

Polymer chains have three basic properties
Polymer chains have three basic properties:

  • The molecular weight and molecular distribution.

  • The conformation of the chains in space.

  • The configuration of the chain.

Coil chain conformation


2 1 examples of configurations and conformations
2.1 Examples of configurations and conformations

2.1.1 Head-to-head and head-to-tail configurations

head-to-tail

head-to-head

Thermodynamically and spatially preferred structure is usually the head-to-tail configuration.

The H-to-H and H-to-T configurations cannot be interchanged without breaking primary chemical bonds.


2 1 2 trans gauche conformations
2.1.2 Trans-Gauche Conformations

The trans-gauche conformations of polymer chain can be interchanged by simple rotation about the single bond linking the moieties.

2.4.1 Optical isomerism


2 4 2 geometric isomerism
2.4.2 Geometric isomerism

The cis-trans isomerism arises because rotation about double bond is impossible without disrupting the structure.
