Abstract

In a dilute polymer solution the solute molecules are on average so far apart that their mutual interactions are of no concern, and we can largely understand the solution properties by simply considering individual molecules surrounded by solvent. We will do this in some detail in this section, before turning our attention to interacting polymer molecules in sections 1.1.2–4.
