Abstract

We demonstrate that entangled polymer solutions and entangled melts behave identically, for a variety of polymeric systems, in extensional flow. These results are expected to resolve the debate on the existence of subtle differences between entangled solutions and melts. Additionally we demonstrate that systems having identical values of the parameter (λmax/Z) show quantitatively identical rheological behavior in extensional flow.
