Abstract

Methodologies for phase behavior characterization allow for discovery of new models for structure-processing-property relationships in polymer blends. Several recent developments were presented in the combinatorial characterization of polymers blends phase behavior and properties using high-throughput libraries of films and coatings using continuous gradient polymer libraries with controlled variations in temperature, composition, thickness, and substrate surface energy. The use of these new library techniques facilitates characterization of polymer blend phase behavior and more generally multicomponent polymeric materials.More recently, the continuous gradient high-throughput approach has been used for mapping phase behavior of olefinic as well as nanocomposite polymer blends, as representative blend systems of commercial importance.
