    • Abstract

       

      Ising model formalism developed for order-disorder transition in poly-peptides has been modified for the study of order-order transition in a macromolecular system. A two-state theory is developed and applied to poly-L-proline I and II. Various transition curves for different chain lengths are obtained as a function of solvent composition. Transition curves and crossing point for a solvent system are in excellent agreement with the experimental data on poly-L-proline.
