Abstract

This paper reviews the determination of polymer/polymer interaction parameters chi from experimental melting point data with emphasis on two major areas. The first concerns variation of morphology with blend composition which can restrict attempts to calculate chi if non-equilibrium melting points are used. The second area of interest involves processes such as lamellar thickening during thermal analysis which can seriously impair determination of 'true' crystalline melting points.
