A novel, precise, and simple method is described for developing a GPC calibration curve for a polymer where only broad molecular weight distribution samples are available. The method demands a GPC calibration curve for another polymer (e.g., polystyrene) and measurement of the intrinsic viscosity and an average molecular weight for each of several samples of the broad molecular weight distribution polymer in addition to GPC measurements on those samples. Results of applying the procedure to poly(n-lauryl methacrylate) are presented.
