Abstract

In order to examine the behavior of incompatible blends of polystyrene and polybutadiene, the glass transition temperature, the melting point, and the specific heat increment at the glass transition temperature for atactic polystyrene (a-PS), isotactic polystyrene (i-PS), polybutadiene (PBD), and blends of a-PS/PBD and i-PS/PBD were determined by use of a differential scanning calorimeter. Blends were prepared by solution casting, freeze-drying, and milling. The results suggest that the polybutadiene dissolves more in the polystyrene phase than does the polystyrene in the polybutadiene phase.
