Abstract

Hydrodynamic chromatography (HDC) is a technique developed to analyze sizes of emulsion polymerization latexes. The technique has been adapted to analyze the molecular sizes of ultra-high molecular weight, water-soluble polymers that are too large to be characterized by conventional size exclusion chromatography. Effective sizes of xanthan polysaccharides, partially hydrolyzed poly-acrylamides, dextrans, tobacco mosaic viruses, linear DNA's, and superhelical DNA's have been successfully determined. The orientation and deformation of rigid and flexible macromolecules have been modelled using polymer kinetic theory to interpret the experimental results.
