A Nomenclature for Multipolymer Systems

  • L. H. Sperling


The previous two chapters briefly described a number of two-polymer combinations: polymer blends, blocks, grafts, and IPNs. A few somewhat more complicated systems were alluded to: blends of a homopolymer with a block copolymer, or a mixture of a graft copolymer with one or both homopolymers. This chapter will explore some of the more complex (and interesting) structures, and provide a nomenclature scheme where one now does not exist.(1)
