Flory-Huggins theoretical estimations. Flory-Huggins theoretical estimations of polymer/toluene (I) and polymer/furfural (II) partition coefficients (curves) for a realistic range of polymer solubility parameters (6 ≤ δ polymer ≤ 14.5). Experimental measurements for toluene partitioning into five different polymers is found in our prior published work (x) and results from other groups (o).
