Abstract

The past decade has witnessed a tremendous upsurge of interest in the whole field of multicomponent polymers which has led to both scientific, and technological advances. Commercial developments include new impact-resistant plastics and new types of elastomers; in both cases the advantageous properties depend on microphase separation in the bulk polymers resulting from the incompatibility of the components. Simultaneous scientific advances have produced a partial understanding of the natures and properties of the new materials1. It has been realised that the character of the intero actions between phases is important2; some guide lines have been laid down which allow morphologies of the materials to be reconciled with the structures of the constituent molecules3 and in some cases morphologies can be predicted from a knowledge of molecular architecture. Limited progress has also been made in understanding physical properties in terms of morphology and molecular structure.
