From the data generated, it is possible to calculate the degree of branching as a function of MW, and consequently the number of arms of each star polymer, to securely identify the species present.

Determination of zinc content in ZnPc star polymer was achieved using a double beam flame atomic absorption, Agilent 240FS equipped with cross flow nebulizer after decomposition of the samples by heating in nitric acid till bleaching of the dye.
The SBS [poly(styrene-b-butadiene-b-styrene)] used as the precursor of SBEBS is a star polymer with four equivalent diblock arms of poly(styrene-6-butadiene) emanating from a silicon-based core with poly(styrene)-b free-ends; it is considered a triblock because the poly(styrene)-b blocks flank a central poly(butadiene)-b block.
