ABSTRACT:  A set of oligo- and poly(α-methylstyrene) samples were prepared by anionic polymerization, giving particular attention to the polymerization temperature and the initial monomer concentration. The samples were characterized by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy and also by three kinds of two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy. It is shown that they have almost the same value 0.72±0.01 of the fraction fr of racemo diads independent of molecular weight, indicating that they are adequate for a study of dilute polymer solutions within the new framework of polymer solution science based on the helical wormlike chain model.
