Abstract

A major unresolved problem in the behavior of crosslinked rubber relates to the Frenkel-Flory-Rehner (FFR) hypothesis that the elastic free energy of a swollen network can be represented by a separable function of the mixing contribution with the elastic contribution. This paper provides measurements of the swelling activity parameter (S) and the elasticity of pressures and temperatures. The authors report preliminary results for the measurement of S for synthetic polyisoprene and its crosslinked (with 10 phr dicumyl peroxide) network swollen in benzene at 30, 40, and 50°C.
