Equilibrium Structure of Hydrogen-Bonded Polymer Blends



C Zhou, Erik K. Hobbie, Barry J. Bauer, Charles C. Han


Deuterium-labeled polystyrene modified by random distributions of the comonomer p-(1,1,1,3,3,3-hexaflouro-2-hydroxyisopropyl)-α-Methyl-styrene [DPS(OH)] has been blended with poly (butyl methacrylate) (PBMA) and studied with small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). Miscibility is induced via hydrogen bonding between the DPS (OH) hydroxyl group and PBMA carbonyl groups. The data suggest that the nature of the miscible-phase structure in these blends differs from that of the usual homopolymer blends at small scattering angles, which we attribute to the short-range site specific nature of the hydrogen bond interaction.
