Surface Studies on Multicomponent Polymeric Solids
Block copolymers and polyblends frequently exhibit phase separation which typically gives rise to a dispersed phase consisting of one polymer component in a continuous matrix of the second polymeric component. The detailed morphology of the domain structure in these systems depends upon such factors as the relative proportions of the two components, the molecular weights, the thermal and physical histories of the polymers, and for solvent cast films, upon the solvent and temperature.
