Abstract

Rheological properties of the polystyrene (PS) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) blends were studied by Advanced Rheometric Expansion System (ARES). Storage modulus and loss modulus of the PS and PMMA blends were measured, and the interfacial tension of the PS and PMMA blends were obtained with various emulsion models by using the storage modulus and loss modulus of the blends. The value of interfacial tension estimated from the Palierne emulsion model was found to be 2.0 mN/m. Also, the interfacial tension between PS and PMMA was calculated by a theoretical model. The values of interfacial tension of the PS and PMMA blends obtained by the experiment and theoretical model were found to be in good agreement.
