The synthesis and characterization of polymer blends derived from poly(organophosphazenes) and organic polymers is reported. The miscibility or immiscibility of the materials is influenced by the choice of organic side groups attached to the polyphosphazene backbone and the ratio of the two component polymers. The blends were characterized by DSC analysis and transmission electron microscopy. DSC and TEM characterization data of freshly prepared semimiscible samples are compared to those of samples prepared 5 years previously to determine the permanence of miscibility and estimate the strength of intermolecular interactions between the constituent polymers.
