    Abstract

    A quartz crystal microbalance was used as the basis of a vapour sorption apparatus to measure thermodynamic interaction parameters of polystyrene, poly(4-chlorostyrene) and poly(methyl methacrylate) with a number of solvents. The apparatus was shown to give rapid and reliable results by comparison with literature results for poly(dimethyl siloxane). Measurements of activity coefficients and Flory-Huggins interaction parameters were correlated with the solution behaviour of the components and revealed some hitherto unreported effects of the solution concentration in polar systems.
