Abstract

Percolation theory has been quite successful in predicting the static properties (such as the distributions of masses and sizes) of branched polymers near the gel point. Dynamics of such systems, on the other hand, are not well understood at present. Here the authors outline a simple dynamic scaling theory based on the Rouse model. Predictions of the theory are compared with experimental data in the form of complex modulus for a series of well-characterized branched polyesters.
