Polyborane and Carborane Polymers

Polyborane Carborane

Given the nature of polyborane and carborane polymers, characterizing their molecular weights can be difficult. Because these polymers don’t have the same randomcoil structure as polystyrene, calibration of molecular weights using retention time with a UV-Vis detector fails to give reasonable results. With the help of Team Wyatt, in this application note we set up a light scattering SEC/GPC system both the poly(organodecaborane) and poly(organo-o-carborane) polymers were fully characterized with molecular weights and polydipersities.
