Abstract:

A gel permeation chromatographic technique, checked by mass spectrometry, has been used to determine the molecular weight distributions of the various hydrocarbon waxes. The technique shows high potential as a method for determining the degree of fractionation of waxes in Comp B casts. The dispersive, wettability and solubility properties of the waxes in the TNTRDX matrix were also investigated.
