Abstract: SummaryA series of ybenzyl-L-glutamate-L-leucine copolymers were prepared and cast films of the copolymers were subjected to dynamic mechanical and stress-strain tests. Dynamic mechanical testing revealed that the copolymers had a molecular relaxation at about 5OoC and that the magnitude of this relaxation was directly proportional to the molar concentration of glu(0Bz) in the copolymer. The magnitude of the 5OoC relaxation was also dependent upon orientation. The stress-strain behavior of the copolymers was …
