The density of the solidified compact was measured with a MD-200S electronic densimeter, which employs the Archimedes principle, and results were reported in terms of relative density of the polymer, which is defined as the ratio of the density of a sample at time t divided by the theoretical density of the pure polymer.
A Toyoseiki Automatic Densimeter, Model D-H100, was used to determine the density at 23[degrees]C.
