The authors consider both diffusion of macromolecular polystyrene stars with different numbers of arms in the linear polymer matrices and the diffusion of linear polymers in matrices of three-arm stars. The relationship between the diffusion coefficient and the molecular weight of the star arm is presented for polystyrene stars. The diffusion mechanisms are also discussed.
