It begins with the measurement of dilute solution viscosity, including the limiting viscosity number (intrinsic viscosity) and related parameters.
A key viscosity parameter for polymer characterization is the limiting viscosity number or intrinsic viscosity, [[eta]].
The viscosity number and logarithmic viscosity number vary with concentration, but each can be extrapolated (Figure 2) to zero concentration to give the limiting viscosity number (intrinsic viscosity).
