in-depth characterization of complex co-polymers

Co-polymers are ubiquitous in modern society as they provide tunability for specific desired chemical and physical properties. To create higher-quality products, it is important to understand the underlying chemical structure that results in the desired physical properties of the final product. The block-length distribution of a copolymer is an important parameter that remains challenging to characterize. To date, most methods aimed at block copolymers characterize average block lengths but cannot comment on its distribution. In this study, we aim to characterize complex co-polymers by investigating the block-length distribution.
