Quantitative Analysis of Step-Growth Polymers by Size Exclusion Chromatography

Brandt, Josef; Haworth, Naomi; Schmidt, Friedrich Georg; Voit, Brigitte; Coote, Michelle; Barner-Kowollik, Christopher; Lederer, Albena


We report an advanced analysis protocol that allows to quantitatively study the course of step-growth reactions by size exclusion chromatography on the example of the depolymerization of a Diels–Alder polymer based on a furane/maleimide couple at elevated temperatures. Frequently occurring issues of molar mass calibrations and overlap of monomer with solvent signals are addressed for determining reliable molar masses. Thereby, even kinetic parameters (e.g., rate coefficients) can be derived...[Show more]
