Molecular Orientation and Absorbance Determination for Oriented Polymers by Tilting Method with Nonpolarized Infrared Light

Volume 25, Number 3 (June 1971) Page 355-360

Koenig, J.L.; Itoga, M.

A new method of measuring the absorbance corrected for orientation and the orientation of oriented polymer systems is derived. The method using unpolarized light utilizes a linear plotting and extrapolation technique to minimize experimental errors. The method is applied to oriented nlyon 66 samples and the results are compared with the previous methods.
