Structure–Property Relationships

  • Wenbing HuEmail author


The chemical structures of polymers are characterized by two levels of essential factors that determine physical properties: the driving-force factors include chain semi-flexibility and complex inter-chain interactions; and the restriction factors include molecular weights and their distributions, topological architectures, and sequence irregularities.
