ABSTRACT:  In order to test the validity of previously developed formulas for the partial molar volume Vp0 of a 1—2 binary copolymer in a mixture of two solvents, density measurements were carried out on styrene–methyl methacrylate and p-chlorostyrene-methyl acrylate copolymers dissolved in the relevant monomer(s). The values of the six parameters necessary to compute Vp0 were determined for each system, and some comments have been made on the individual parameter values. The predicted values of Vp0 were in good agreement with those directly measured. Based on the results, numerical expressions for the volume contraction factors for the low-conversion copolymerizations of the two monomer pairs were derived.
