Some transport properties of the seemingly compatible glassy polyblends of atactic Polystyrene (APS) with both Poly (2,6-dimethyl-l,4-phenylene oxide) (PPO) and isotactic Polystyrene (IPS), obtained by casting solutions of mutual solvents, have been studied. In particular, morphology changes associated to sample preparation and physical treatments (annealing and swelling in n-hexane) have been related to their transport properties.
