Abstract

The dilute solution behavior of several alternating copolymers of maleic acid was characterized by static and dynamic light scattering, intrinsic viscosity, and pulsed-gradient spin-echo NMR spectroscopy. The copolymer modified with the longer chain n-decyl forms stable large intermolecular aggregates containing 33 chains/aggregate. The copolymer of maleic acid-sodium salt and di-siobutylene (DINMA-Na) possesed a similar salting-out concentration as SMA-Na. The scattering results, PGSE, NMR diffusion measurements indicate only one diffusion coefficient consistent with the motion of single isolated chains.
