Excluded-Volume Interactions of Neutral Polymers in Solution

  • A. G. Ogston

Abstract

In this article, based in part upon notes prepared for a tutorial seminar, I have attempted a rather simple account of the nature and consequences of excluded-volume interactions between neutral macromolecules. In spite of some quite gross approximations (to which I draw attention) this treatment has provided at least qualitative, often quite good quantitative, agreements with experiment.
