In this study the diffusion-controlled interactions of phenyl-terminated polybutadiene with CCl//4 in several solvents were studied using fluorescence quenching. In this case, the fluorescing chromophore is located at the chain end (as opposed to being the small molecule) and the small molecule, CCl//4, serves as the quenching species. Ethyl benzene and phenyl-terminated polybutadienes of average degrees of polymerization 11 to 46 were included in this study to allow for comparison of small molecule-small molecule, small molecule-oligomer, and small molecule-polymer interactions.
