  • Abstract A light scattering study of dilute solutions consisting of poly(4-vinylpyridine) dissolved in chloroform has been carried out. Chloroform is a good solvent for P4VP. Dynamic light scattering measurements show only a diffusion mode in the intensity autocorrelation function for freshly prepared solutions, but two modes are present as the solution ages. The two modes found in P4VP/CHCl3 solution both show a clear q dependence, q being the magnitude of the scattering wave vector, thus indicating that both are diffusive modes. For this system, the diffusion coefficient is found to be mainly determined by the osmotic modulus, with the solution stress modulus making a negligible contribution. A decrease of mutual diffusion coefficient with increasing polymer concentration is observed. As the temperature of the solution is lowered, the mutual diffusion coefficient decreases linearly. Extrapolation of the mutual diffusion coefficient to zero yields the critical temperature, at which the P4VP/CHCl3 solution undergoes a phase transition.
