So, I read in a similar chemistry thread that you can get Mn and Mw of the polymer of the interest by comparing the result of the sample obtained from GPC/SEC with the standard known molecule weight polymer like polystyrene.
I don't understand how this works. You compare what of the polymer with what of the polystyrene to determine the molecular weight?? There has to be a constant factor when determining relative values between two things, and what is it in the case of polystyrene and the polymer of the interest?
What do you mean by polystyrene equivalent value? What is the point of determining the relative molecular weight of a polymer based on the polystyrene equivalent value??
