Average Degree of Deacetylation and Average Viscosimetric Molar Mass.
The concentrations of chitosan solutions prepared for viscosimetric measurements were tested and defined to meet the ideal condition of the optimal range of relative viscosity (1.1 to 1.5) and a flow time above 100 s, which are relevant factors for reliable determinations [29].
As observed for copolysilsesquioxane synthesized, the hybrids also shown a pseudoplastic behavior in the viscosimetric measurements [29].
The intrinsic viscosity of this PDLA in chloroform at 25[degrees]C was 5.68 dl/g, corresponding to a viscosimetric molecular weight of [M.sub.v] = 319,400 g/mol.
Thus a considerable amount of effort was devoted to molecular weight determination by end group determination and light scattering and fractionation by precipitation and subsequent viscosimetric characterization of the fractions.
