 ABSTRACT

Dilute solutions of poly (n-decyl methacrylate) in homologous series of n-alkanes have been studied. The measurements of viscosity-temperature dependence of poly(n-decyl methacrylate) in n-alkanes (as a model solvent for paraffinic lils) were applied for model calculation of the specific viscosity as a function of temperature and molecular weight. Exchange parameters of poly(n-decyl methacrylate) in n-alkanes have been determined according to Flory’s theory and were applied to predict the mixing of polymethylene with poly(n-decyl methacrylate). The positive energy of mixing signifies mutual incompatibility of these polymers.

Keywords: dilute solution properties; miscibility of blends; poly(n-decyl methacrylate); viscosity index improver.
