## Synthetic versus biological networksThe Wiley Polymer Networks Group Review Series Volume 2 Synthetic versus Biological Networks Edited by B. T. Stokke and A. Elgsaeter The Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway This, the second volume in the series, presents articles from the 14th Polymer Networks Group conference which took place in Norway in July 1998 The focus of the conference was 'Synthetic versus Biological Networks' with papers highlighting the different ideas emerging from investigations into synthetic polymer networks as opposed to, and in comparison with, polymer networks of biological origins. The papers published in this volume have been divided into six sections: Network Formation Network Characterization Polymer Networks and Precursor Architectures Biopolymer Networks and Gels Biomedical Applications of Polymer Networks Polymer Networks in Restricted Geometries |

Following a similar idea, one of the present authors derived a Smoluchowski-like

reacting with substitution effect, where intramolecular reactions were taken into

account [13]. A simplified version of this

presented in this paper. Since, however, we were unable to solve this

we present results of Monte Carlo calculations based on the same model. These

A. Elgsaeter B. T. Stokke. SANS MEASUREMENTS ON POLYISOPRENE/

TOLUENE SYSTEMS The scattering response of a semi-dilute solution of a non-

associating polymer is described by

solutions, however, display slight haze, indicating the presence of clusters (

nanostructures). This is probably due to oxidation of polyisoprene. The size of

these clusters is comparable with the wavelength of visible light. In Figure 15.3 is

shown the SANS ...

In the case that spherical particles associate and form gel, the gelation process

will be described in terms of the FS model by introducing the form factor of a

sphere in

shown in Figure 27.1 for the association of spherical particles, which are

represented by a rigid sphere of a uniform radius 5 A. It is often found that the
