A method for evaluating the dipole moments of copolymers in relation to the distribution of polar unit sequences is proposed. Experimental data on the synthesis and dipole moments of styrene-p-chlorostyrene and styrene-p-methoxystyrene copolymers were used to calculate the effective dipole moment of a polar unit in a copolymer. For this purpose, we assumed the following effective moment values for the corresponding polar unit sequences along the copolymer chains: when both of the nearest neighbours are polar, mu(PP), when one of the nearest neighbours is polar and the other is non-polar, mu(PS), and when both of the nearest neighbours are non-polar, mu(SS). The relative magnitudes of mu(SS), mu(PS) and mu(PP) calculated for both copolymers reflect the influence of dipole-dipole interactions on the effective dipole moment of a polar unit in a copolymer molecule.

KUCUKYAVUZ, Z; ALYURUK, K; AHMAD, AM (Elsevier BV, 1991-01-01)
Dipole moments of poly(propylene oxide) (PPO) samples with different tacticities were determined from dielectric constant and refractive index increment measurements, which were performed on dilute toluene and isooctane solutions. In contrast to previous reports, both refractive index increments and the dipole moment ratios showed a marked dependence on the tacticities of the samples. The dipole moment ratios of isotactic samples were greater than unity and decreased with increasing sequence concentration...
LATTICE POLYMERS - BEHAVIOR FAR FROM THETA-CONDITIONS
YURTSEVER, E; ISSEVER, S (Elsevier BV, 1992-01-01)
Two-dimensional Monte-Carlo simulations of lattice polymers were carried out employing Lennard-Jones (LJ) type intramolecular interactions. The shape-dependent properties of these polymers were studied over a large range of interaction parameters and temperatures. The variation of the critical constant was also analysed. Two-dimensional surfaces of sections were used to determine the portions of the parameter space which corresponded to theta-conditions. The behaviour of LJ polymers far from theta-condition...
MONOMER REACTIVITY RATIOS OF STYRENE-4-VINYLPYRIDINE COPOLYMERS AT LOW AND HIGH CONVERSIONS
YILMAZ, E; KUCUKYAVUZ, Z (Elsevier BV, 1993-01-01)
Monomer reactivity ratios in free-radical copolymerization of styrene and 4-vinylpyridine monomers at 80-degrees-C in toluene solution under reduced pressure were determined for low and high conversions. Finemann-Ross, Kelen-Tudos, extended Kelen-Tudos and Mayo-Lewis methods were used for this purpose. The most reliable method was found to be the extended Kelen-Tudos method. By the use of this method, for conversions below 20%, monomer reactivity values of 0.700 +/- 0.005 and 0.335 +/- 0.001 were calculated...
DIPOLE-MOMENTS OF STYRENE 4-VINYLPYRIDINE COPOLYMERS .1. RELATION TO THE FRACTION OF POLAR COMPONENT
YILMAZ, E; KUCUKYAVUZ, Z (Wiley, 1994-03-01)
Mean-square dipole moments for styrene/4-vinylpyridine (S4VP) random copolymers were determined at five different temperatures, 25-60-degrees-C, in 1,4-dioxane solution. The dipole moment behaviour was examined with respect to the increase in mole fraction of the polar monomer, 4-vinylpyridine (4VP), in the copolymer. The behaviour observed was different from the general behaviour of similar copolymers.

Mean-square dipole moment values of styrene/4-vinylpyridine (S4VP) copolymers determined at 25-60-degrees-C in 1,4-dioxane solutions were related to the microstructure of the chains. Data on the synthesis and dipole moments of S4VP copolymers were used to calculate the distribution of triad fractions and effective dipole moments of styrene, S-centred, and 4-vinylpyridine, V-centred, fractions in the copolymer chains. The relative magnitudes of the effective dipole moment values calculated for each type of t...
