Crossover behavior of transport properties of dilute polymer solutions

Y. Oono, M. Kohmoto

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The crossover behavior (temperature dependence) of universal ratios containing the intrinsic viscosity, the mean square radius of gyration, and the osmotic second virial coefficients is studied with use of the renormalization-group theory. The agreement with experimental results is satisfactory in some cases, but the wild scattering of existing experimental results calls for more accurate and systematic experiments.
