Transport Properties of Polymer Solutions
In this study, the transport properties observed are sensitive to the mobility of water in the polymer solutions. Two major effects dominate water mobility; the obstruction effect and the hydration effect. The study attempted to account for the obstruction effect with the use of either the Maxwell or Hanai mixture theories which have previously been applied to aqueous polymer solutions and microemulsions. The use of mixture theories is verified with transport measurements on aqueous dispersions of polystyrene latex spheres or colloidal silica.
