Abstract

The scaling predictions for the temperature dependence of the intrinsic viscosity of flexible polymers are briefly reviewed. When the predictions are fit to a power law over a fixed range of chain length, a relation between the exponent and prefactor of the Mark-Houwink-Sakurada equation emerges. In comparing with the experimental data compilation of Rai and Rosen, we conclude that real polymer systems are nowhere near the true good solvent limit, even when the exponent matches the good solvent prediction.
