Abstract

IN dissolving high-molecular weight compounds in hydrocarbons to give viscous solutions, it is convenient to stir or otherwise agitate the mixture until the viscosity of the solvent is raised to such a degree as to prevent any settling of the partially dissolved particles on standing. After such a 'set time' is reached, the material can be left to dissolve on its own accord. Homogeneity may be attained by a final shaking or mixing.
