Phys Chem Chem Phys. 2016 Dec 15. [Epub ahead of print]The chain dynamics of well-defined poly(2-methoxyethyl acrylate) (PMEA), which has been used in practice as a bioinert coating for heart-lung machines, was examined as a function of water content by dielectric relaxation spectroscopy (DRS). Two relaxation processes observed in both dried and hydrated films were assigned to the segmental motion (α-process) and the relatively smaller scale motion such as the hindered rotation of side chains (β-process).
