Temperature dependencies of the thermal expansion coefficient for segments of macromolecular helices, ol(T), were obtained for polymers by infrared (IR) spectroscopy. It was shown that the a ( T ) are complicated (nonlinear) over a wide temperature range. Wunderlich and Bauer's idea concerning "freezing out" of normal vibrations of polymer chains was used to describe them. It was shown that the substitution of the classical rather than quantum statistics for both torsional and bending vibrational modes of mac…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
