Abstract

Communication: Miscibility is not always common in blends of homologous polymers that differ in structure but possess the same functional groups. In this study, two methacrylate polymers, which differ by a methylene unit, were found to be miscible in accordance with morphology and thermal transition criteria of polymer miscibility. Miscibility of the pair poly(phenyl methacrylate) and poly(benzyl methacrylate) is quite unusual. Interactions between carbonyl units and phenyl rings of these two polymers are discussed. FT-IR results indicate an intimate mixing state between these two polymers leading to mutual influence in the absorbance wavenumbers for C=O, ether groups and, possibly, phenyl rings.
