  • Content Description: Progress on the following three projects are described: swelling of elastomers by diluents; theoretical analysis of the dynamics and thermodynamics of random networks; and synthesis of elastomers with metal-chelate crosslinkages. Five elastomer-solvent systems were investigated. In all cases polydimethylsiloxane was used with either cyclohexane or benzene or both. The comparison established the general validity of Flory's new constrained junction theory. However a slight revision of the theory was required. Theoretical work on amorphorus systems centered on evaluation of the density states for models (constructed by others) of amorphorus silicon, As/sub 2/O/sub 3/, etc. The utility of these models are being assessed. A batch of styrene-isoprene elastomer was prepared and is undergoing stress-strain measurements.
