Paper Abstract

The method of conformational probes has been developed. The conformational mobility of probes introduced into poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) and having different sizes of rotational fragments (Vp) has been investigated. There is a correlation between the freezing temperature of probe conformational transitions (Tf) and Vp. These data have been considered within the frameworks of the free volume theory and the relaxational transitions. Conformational mobility of probes in poly(vinyl trimethylsilane) (PVTMS) and poly(trimethylsilyl propyne) (PTMSP) with a large free volume fraction has been studied.
