The measurements of the recoverable compliance of fractions of cyclic polystrene show that the cyclic molecules behave much as do their linear counterparts except that both the plateau compliance and the steady state recoverable compliance are twice what they are for their linear counterparts of the same molecular weight. This appears to be true over the entire range of molecular weights for which measurements were made. The creep and recovery behavior of the polystyrene rings were determined using a Magnetic Bearing Torsional Creep Apparatus.
