In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Large scale Soxhlet extraction and fractional precipitation have been utilised to provide low molecular weight extracts from poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC), polystyrene and polyethylene. These extracts were then resolved into their constituent oligomers by high performance gel permeation chromatography and high performance liquid chromatography. [Continues.]
