Comments "At this point it has to be pointed out that the estimated size of the molecules presented in Table 2 is based on the assumption that the molecules are linearly stretched. The degree of coiling is not considered in this estimation. Thus the estimation can only provide a general idea of the molecular size but little information on the diffusion characteristics. However, comparison of size among the molecules from the same class is still reliable." Bond length and bond angle from primary source.
