The Role of Solubility in Thermal Field Flow Frac-tionation – A Revisited Theoretical Approach for Tuning the Separation of Chain-Walking Polymerized Polyethylene
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
Kok and Tijssen combined with the Hansen solubility theory. Thereby, a significant improvement in the precision of the thermal diffusion prediction and the separation efficiency has been achieved by implementation of the temperature dependency on Hansen solubility parameters. In addition, we demonstrate a method for validation of the segmental size of polymer chains with varying topology by using the revisited thermal diffusion prediction approach in inverse mode and experimental thermal diffusion data.
