This paper analyzes solvation and association in macromolecular solvents using mean-field theory applied to several lattice–gas models. The thermodynamic functions of solvation and the equilibrium constant for association is calculated in terms of the temperature, pressure, and solvent molecular size. Applications to ion association in polymer electrolytes are discussed and the advantages and flaws of the model are critically analyzed. Exact results for a simple one dimensional model are also obtained and discussed.

    The problem of a macromolecule adsorbed on a single surface is treated by means of a generating function technique. The basic method has the virtues of simplicity and flexibility. The statistical weights that appear in the generating functions for tails, trains, and loops can be calculated with...
