Rubber Elasticity*

G. GE~

In this review a modified equation [or the lree energy o[ a single chain is pro-

posed, based on a recent discussion of the excluded volume problem. A simple

model o[ a network element is used to study departures from affine behaviour

and the form of the stress/strain curve. Comparison with the Mooney equation

suggests that the C~ term cannot be explained in terms of excluded volume,

and it is suggested that the packing problem requires [urther study. Energy and

volume changes on elongation are reviewed and the need for [urther work

emphasized.

(1) Introduction

IT IS not possible, in the course of a single lecture, to review all facets of

the theory of rubber elasticity. Comments will therefore be centred on two

topics of current interest: (a) the form of the stress/strain curve, and its

dependence on chain statistics; (b) the volume and energy changes accom-

panying elongation.

The quantitative interpretation of rubber elasticity 1 rests firmly on the

use of Gaussian statistics to describe the behaviour of a single chain. The

elastic network is then treated as an assembly of chains, with the assumption

--which can be justified for Gaussian chains---of affine deformation of the

junction points. From time to time the suggestion has been made that some

of the observed discrepancies between theory and experiment may have their

origin in departures from Gaussian statistics. It is well known that a free

chain, in a neutral environment, is not Gaussian, due to the excluded volume

effect. In a dilute solution the overall dimensions depend upon the nature

of the solvent, and much use has been made of theta solvents, defined 2 as

those in which the laws of ideal solutions hold at finite (low) concentrations.

Under these circumstances the net excluded volume effect is zero, the expan-

sion due to this cause being balanced out by the contraction occurring in a

thermodynamically poor solvent. It is also generally accepted 3,4 that in a

bulk polymer, the effective excluded volume must be zero, because the

local structure is determined by interactions of segments, in which it is a

matter of indifference whether these belong to the same or to different

molecules.

Quantitative analysis of the behaviour of networks of non-Gaussian chains

raises two problems: (1) the description of the properties of a single chain,

and (2) the study of possible departures from affine deformation. In this

paper we make use of a recent treatment of the statistics of an infinite chain

to define a parameter which can be used to describe departures from Gaus-

sian statistics. The resulting free energy equation is then used in an accurate

study of a 'network' of four chains, where departure from affine behaviour

can be determined.

Research, Midland, Michigan, U.S.A.. and was presented at the Great Lakes Conference on Polymer

and Colloid Science, Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A., October 1965.

G. GEE

The simplest theories of rubber elasticityI treat a linear molecule as a

random chain, made up of n links of length l, in which there are no res-

trictions on orientation. If one end of the chain is fixed, the probability P(r)

of finding the other end in a specified volume element dv at a distance r is

given by

P(r) d r = (~Trn12)-3:2 exp ( - 3r2/2nP) dV (1)

It is seen that P(r) has a maximum at r = 0, i.e. the most probable point at

which to find the chain end is coincident with the beginning. The probability

W(r) of finding the end at a distance between r and (r + dr) is then

W(r) dr = 4~'Pe(r) dr (2).

which has a maximum at r~I. =(}nP)~. The mean square of r is easily

shown to be

<r2)o =nl2 O~

This quantity <r2>o plays a central role in all theories of rubber elasticity

and a reconsideration of its evaluation is one of the principal objectives of

current work. Three factors have received attention, concerned with: (a)

the recognition that the angle between consecutive links is fixed by valency

considerations; (b) the fact that rotation about a single bond involves

changes of energy, so that certain orientations are favoured; (c) the fact that

molecules occupy a finite volume, so that conformations involving simul-

taneous occupation of a given volume element by two finks are impossible,

Of these the first introduces no modifications which cannot be allowed for

by redefining n and l, subject to the condition that nl is the outstretched

length of the molecule.

Energy barriers to rotation also leave the form of equation (3) unchanged,

but <r-~>, becomes a function of temperature. If we consider a chain in

which each link has effectively a choice of two orientations, which differ

in energy by AE, then 5

d In (r2)0/dT ~ A E / R T 2 (4)

The experimental study of this equation has been one of the most fruitful

of recent developments. It will be noted that to maintain equation (3), if

AE @ 0, n and l must be temperature dependent.

The effect of finite volume has proved difficult to treat quantitatively.

Physically it is evident that exclusion of the more folded configurations

must expand and broaden the distribution. Monte Carlo calculations on

lattice models have led to the result s

<r2>0 --~ n x+~ (5)

where, for long chains, 022 2> y > 0"18. Schatzki 7 has also tabulated dis-

tributions of end to end distances, from which it is possible to derive

numerically 8 P(r) and W(r). These suffer from the fact that the particular

lattice model chosen necessarily imposes a certain discontinuity, although

Domb 9 has shown that all lattices give similar values of y (equation (5)).

Recently Edwards 1° has succeeded in obtaining an asymptotic solution in

closed form for the position of the nth link of an infinite chain, which may

be written

P(r) ~,~ exp [ - (1 "35/riP) (r - 0-87n°'6/a°'2) 2] (6)

where the volume excluded by a link is

vlo~.l = a P (7)

so that a appears in equation (6) as a numerical parameter. In the limit of

n > co, this leads to a mean square end to end distance

(r2> o = 0" 7 5 5n1~Pa °'4 (8)

The exponent of n is here exactly 6/5, giving ~/ (equation (5))=0"20, in

agreement with the lattice calculations.

For the purpose of this paper, it has been a s s u m e d that an equation of

the form (6) is valid also for finite values of n. Although this will not be

strictly true, it should suffice to indicate semi-quantitatively the conse-

quences of departure from Gaussian statistics.

For application to the theory of elasticity, the distribution is conveniently

expressed in terms of the configurational free energy of a chain whose ends

are fixed at two specified points, a distance r apart. For a chain obeying

Gaussian statistics, i.e. equation (1), this has the form

G = const. + ( 3 k T / 2 n l S ) r ~ (9)

If such a chain is deformed from an initial length r . to a final length r, the

increase of free energy is then

A G = ( 3 k T / 2 r i P ) (r = - r~) = ( 3 k T / 2 n P ) ~ ( h 2 - 1) (10)

where h is defined as r/r~.

For non-Gaussian chains, G will no longer be linear in k=; numerical

calculations have been reported 8 on the basis of Schatzki's work. If an

equation of the form (6) holds, (9) and (10) must be replaced by

G = const. + (1 "35/ni 2) (r - r*) 2 (11)

AG = (l . 3 5 k T / n P ) r ~ [()~ - b) 2 - (1 - b) 2] (12)

If equation (6) held exactly we should have further

r * = br~ = 0"87 Ia°2n °'~ (13)

and we m a y guess that this is the correct limit as n > c¢.

The mean value of r 2 has been obtained as a function of b by numerical

integration of

~ r a exp [ - ( 1 "35/nl 2) ( r - r*) 2] dr

(r~>0 = ° (14)

A general equation for r*, and therefore for b, should have equations

(13) and (17) as limiting forms. For the purpose of this paper we simply

treat b as a parameter which is some sort of measure of the excluded

volume, becoming zero for Gaussian chains.

0-8. The curves are qualitatively similar to those previously derived from

Schatzki's data, but exact agreement is not expected, since in the latter

elongation ratios were computed relative to r . . . . instead of to <ta>0 (which

is more difficult to estimate reliably). This has the effect of tilting the free

energy curve; allowing for this, our calculations from Schatzki's data for

n = 6 0 give results very similar to those of Figure I for b=0"6.

In a normal crosslinking procedure, we start with a system consisting of

a close-packed assembly of long molecules, free to move and to change shape

and position subject to the requirement of constant volume. Chemical

reagents are introduced and are molecularly dispersed uniformly throughout

the system. Chemical reaction occurs, in which the effective reagent is a

very small part of a polymer molecule, so that each molecule may possess

(say) 10" reactive units. A small fraction (say one per cent) of these react,

so that the chemical reaction is in no way influenced by the chain character

376

THE P R E S E N T STATUS OF THE T H E O R Y OF R U B B E R ELASTICITY

of the polymer. As a result of the chemical reaction the system now contains

a large number of reacted points, and these will be randomly distributed

in space. Each reacted point links together two of the original long mole-

cules, and can now be thought of as a junction point from which four chains

radiate. Most of these chains will terminate at some other junction point,

and it is therefore convenient to speak of the length of molecule comprised

between two junction points as a chain. A few chains will form a closed

loop, returning to the same junction point. A number of chains equal to

twice the original number of molecules will terminate in a free end. For

most purposes, we can ignore both closed loops and free ends, and regard

the structure as a perfect network.

When the body is deformed by the application of forces, the whole

network must respond, and will of course do so in such a way that the

increase of free energy is a minimum. It is frequently assumed that the,

network free energy is simply the sum of the free energies of the individual

chains. If these are Gaussian, and a representative chain changes its end to

end distance from ri to r, the resulting free energy increase will be given

by equation (10). To obtain an expression for the network free energy, we

have still to solve two problems: to evaluate ri; and to sum over all the

chains.

The simplest forms of theory put r~ =(rS>o =n/s, and thus obtain, for

the representative chain,

A G = 1.5 k T ()t s - 1) (18)

The essential assumption involved in the summation is that each chain

undergoes affine deformation, i.e. that its end to end distance changes pro-

portionally to the bulk dimensions in the direction in which the chain lies.

It then follows that if there are N chains in the network, and the total

deformation is described by the three principal strains ~,1, h2 and h3, the

total free energy of deformation is given by

AG = 0"5 N k T (hl + h~ + h~ - 3 ) (19)

Wall and Flory11 have argued that an additional term is required when

• 8

the deformation revolves a change of volume, to take account of the

combination of the chains into a network; they modify (19) to

AG = 0-5 N k T [hl + hl + hi - In (hi As h3) - 3] (20)

The identification of ~ with <r2>0 is based on the argument that any pair

of segments in the linear polymer will on average be at this separation.

When crosslinking occurs, the pair which form contiguous junction points

become relatively fixed in position, and therefore retain this separation.

This argument ignores a number of important considerations: (a) The

value of <r2)0 which should be used is that appropriate to the conditions of

crosslinking, which will typically involve a temperature much higher than

that of the subsequent deformation. Unless (r~>o is temperature-independent,

chains which are at their most probable lengths when formed will no

longer be so in the undeformed test piece used in a normal mechanical

test. (b) Unless all the crosslinks are formed simultaneously, the growing

fragments of network will tend to contract, thereby changing the statistics

377

G. G E E

is illustrated by the observation that crosslinking in dilute solution may be

followed by syneresis of free liquid. The equilibrium here involves a balance

between network contraction and the swelling (osmotic) pressure of the

liquid, which will be operative even if all the crosslinks are formed at

the same instant.

Considerations such as these make it desirable to modify equation (19)

[or (20)] by a factor <~)/<r~>o which Tobolsky et al. 12 have called the

'front factor'. Recent discussion has been concerned with the temperature

and volume dependence of this factor. From the foregoing argument <~)

is seen to represent an average of the chains as they exist in a test sample

at the start of a deformation experiment. If we compare one experiment

with another under different conditions (of temperature, pressure or state

of dilution by a swelling agent) it is reasonable to assume <~> o= V20/swhere

V0 is the volume of the undeformed sample in a particular experiment. It

is clear that <r~> cannot change during an experiment, since it refers

specifically to the initial conditions.

<r~)0 refers to free chains as they would exist under the conditions of the

experiment. It is an implicit assumption of the whole analysis that <r2)0

will depend only on the temperature, and will therefore remain constant

during any isothermal experiment. The most general form in which to

express equation (20) is therefore

AG = CV2o/3 T~(T) [h~ + k~ + h~ - In (V/V0) - 3] (21)

where ~b(T) accounts for the temperature dependence of <r2)0. Applying

this equation to simple elongation, h l = L / L o ; h ] = k ~ = L o V / L V o . If we

also set L~ = V0, we obtain

AG = CTd?(T) [L 2 + 2 V / L - In (V / V0) - 3] (22)

For most purposes, the expansion accompanying elongation of a solid

elastomer at constant pressure and temperature is entirely negligible, and

the stretching force is then given by

1=2 CTd/(T) [ L - V / L 2] • (23)

where C is predicated to be independent of T and V.

Assuming the validity of this equation, we can use it in conjunction

with standard thermodynamic equations to draw conclusions regarding

the change in energy at constant volume, and the change in volume at

constant pressure. Without further physical assumption, we obtain s, is:

The derivation of equations (21) to (25) has specificially assumed Gaussian

statistics. If the representative chain is non-Gaussian, the analysis given

is invalid. An attempt has been made s to investigate numerically the effect

made this inconclusive, but a similar analysis can now be made analytically

by using equation (12). This leads straightforwardly to the result:

ignores a very important consequence of departure from Gaussian

statistics: it is no longer permissible to assume affine deformation. To

investigate this problem, some numerical calculations have been made on

a simple model.

We consider four chains meeting at a junction point, with their other

ends initially at the corners of a regular tetrahedron of volume V0. A force

(D is now applied along the direction of one chain, so that the tetrahedron

is deformed to a triangular pyramid of volume, V = V0s~, and height As

times that of the tetrahedron. Denote by ht the extension ratio of the axial

chain, and by h2 that of the other three chains (Figure 2). The problems

to be examined are: (a) the position of the junction point, and (b) the

magnitude of the force.

The free energy is given by

AG/C = (Xl - b) 2+ 3(X2 - b) 2 - 4(1 - b) 2 (27)

and geometrical considerations require

hl = (~AS- 2~1)~+ 8s2/9h (28)

The position of the junction point will be such that OG/Oht =0, the solution

to which is conveniently written in terms of y = AS- hi

Since y is always small, this is easily solved numerically. The stretching

force f is then given by:

(0 Taking s = 1, X= ~/6, AG has been plotted as a function of hi (Figure

3) for several values of b. Attine deformation requires the minimum to

occur at h~=h; this is seen to apply for the Gaussian curve (b=0), but

the other curves deviate substantially.

(ii) Load/elongation curves were evaluated for a range of values of

b and s. These are represented in Figure 4 in the form of the function

dp=fs-2(h-h-~) -1, while the departure from Gaussian behaviour is shown

in Figure 5 by plotting y/hs. It is easily seen, from the form of the equations,

that these functions do not depend on b and s independently, but only on

b/s. Thus while b will increase with dilution, its effect on the elastic

behaviour of a network is compensated by the increase in s. For h > 1, y / ~

shows a maximum at approximately 100 per cent elongation, representing

a three per cent departure from affine deformation for b/s=0"2. For the

same b/s, the increase in ~b from h = l is two per cent at h = 2 , increasing

to five per cent at h=3, and eight percent at ~ = 4 .

calculations with the observed behaviour of an elastomer. It has become

customary to represent measurements made in simple elongation by means

of the Mooney equation TM 1~

I/2(h-h-2)=CI +C2/X (31)

which is generally found to hold fairly well over the range of elongation

1 < h < 2. If the polymer is swollen, the second term becomes less im-

portant, and the effect of swelling can be represented at least approximately

by modifying equation (3 l) to the formiC:

381

G. GEE

where ~b=, the volume fraction of polymer in the swollen sample, is equiva-

lent to 1/s s in our analysis. The si£mificance of the term C= has remained

obscure, and some workers lr have dismissed it as an experimental artefact.

It is not always sufficiently realized that the Mooney equation holds

only over a very short range of h. Combining Treloar's observations 1' on

bi-axial deformation with Mullins's measurements ~' on elongation, two

typical curves of ~b versus 1/h are reproduced in Figure 6, in which the

broken lines represent equation (32). On the same figure are included two

curves replotted from Figure 5. Comparison cannot of course be exact,

since our model represents only a typical dement of the network, deformed

in a particular way. Nevertheless, two conclusions seem justified: (I) a

very large ratio b/s would be needed to produce any detectable change

in ~b; (2) even with a large ratio b/s, the highly characteristic fall of ~b from

h = 1 to h = 2 is not reproduced at all. In the light of these observations,

the suggestion made previously8, that the C~ term might be due at least

in part to the excluded volume, must be withdrawn.

It is more difficult to make any positive contribntion to the interpretation

of C2, more particularly since recent experimental work 19 has tended to

contradict earlier evidence that C2 does not vary widely. It may, however,

be worthwhile to call attention a g a i n 2°' 2t to the fact that the theoretical

treatment ignores completely the problem of molecular packing in the solid

state. This will greatly reduce the configurational entropy of the system, but

will only contribute to the observed force if the packing free energy changes

on deformation. DiMarzio ~2 has recently concluded, on the basis of an

admittedly crude analysis, that while this will indeed contribute to C~, by

itself it can account for no more than a small part of a typical value of

382

THE PRESENT STATUS OF THE THEORY OF RUBBER ELASTICITY

that the elastic free energy associated with the variation of ~b in Figure 6,

from h = I to h = 2 , amounts only to 0.02 cal/emL This is only one tenth

of the amount by which the entropy ( x T) of solid natural rubber has been

estimated2~ (from solution thermodynamics) to fall short of the value for

a random assembly.

For most purposes, it is a sufficiently good approximation to say that an

elastomer elongates without change of volume. This cannot of course

be strictly true, since the hydrostatic component of the tensile force must

produce a dilation, whose magnitude is given, according to the network

theory outlined above, by equation (25). Recently Tobolsky ~" has suggested

that C in equation (23) may be volume dependent. The direct experimental

determination of dilation is difficult, and equation (25) cannot yet be

said to have been adequately tested. Strong, though indirect, evidence of

its accuracy comes from a study of the thermoelastic behaviour of

elastomers.

Equation (24) provides a basis for the interpretation of stress/tempera-

ture measurements; in conjunction with equation (4), valuable information

becomes accessible on the energy differences between different rotational

states of a chain. As it stands, equation (24) calls for temperature co-

efficients at constant volume, which have hitherto not been available.

However, the constant pressure coefficients are readily converted, if the

volume change is known. Assuming the dilation calculated from equation

(25) to be correct, it is easily shown~ that equation (24) is equivalent, to

d In <r2>o 0 In (//T)] + x 3- 1

~ (33)

dT = ~ JP, L

where ot is the coefficient of cubical expansion. Flory and his co-workers

have made a series of very careful measurements on a range of polymers,

and have interpreted them by means of this equation. Their work may be

illustrated by quoting some results 24 for atactic poly(isopropyl acetate):

OT ]p. r. 103 A~ ------'1 dr

1 "305 0"81 0"56 0-25

1-364 0"68 0"45 0"23

The importance of the correction term a/(h 3- 1) is obvious, but the fact

that the final column shows no systematic dependence on ~ suggests that

the dilation has been correctly estimated. Taken by itself, this evidence is

far from compelling, as it is easily shown that a modification of equation

(25) may change the figures in the last column without causing them to

depend on h. More convincing is the cumulative effect of a series of such

investigations2~-29in some of which an independent estimate of d In <r2>0/dT

G. G E E

obtained have several times been found consistent with calculations based

on the energies of different chain conformations.

Current work should shortly lead either to complete confirmation of these

conclusions, or to the need for a reassessment. Several investigators are re-

examining the experimental problem of dilation measurements, with the

hope of obtaining more definitive results. The direct measurement of tem-

perature coefficients at constant volume has also been undertaken, but the

preliminary results~° which have been reported are not quite of the

precision required.

The main stream of progress depends on a network theory in which the

chains show Gaussian behaviour. This has achieved notable successes, but

some caution is needed in accepting present evidence as a complete justi-

fication of all the details of the theory.

Perhaps the most striking recent advance is in the interpretation of the

stress/temperature coefficient of a network in terms of the energy differences

between rotational positions of a single chain. The good agreement found,

both with measurements on dilute solutions and with theoretical values, is

particularly convincing. It is clear, however, that this does no more than

show the reality of this factor in determining the end to end distance of a

chain; it is not by itself evidence concerning the distribution.

An attempt has been made here to assess the effects of departures from

Gaussian behaviour consequent upon an excluded volume. Without claim-

ing quantitative validity for the analysis, it seems justifiable to conclude that

this would not modify the elastic properties of a network in the way

empirically described by the C~ term.

In principle, the most critical experiments which could be performed

involve the use of samples swollen before and/or after crosslinking. There

is evidence~1, however, that this introduces a new source of uncertainty,

which is particularly important when we consider a polymer swollen to

less than its saturation value, since the (negative) free energy of mixing is

then large compared with that involved in network deformation. Closely

related to this problem is the suggestion reiterated here that the C2 term

reflects, at least in part, changes of packing. It is clear that more detailed

understanding of molecular arrangements in the solid polymer, both dry

and swollen, is greatly to be desired.
