TopicPhase Structure Formation and Evolution in Flowing Immiscible Polymer Blends
AnnotationBlends of immiscible polymers represent significant amount of polymer materials used in everyday life. For tailoring their properties, their phase structure formed during their mixing and processing must be controlled. The aim of the study is contribute to understanding of the phase structure formation and evolution in flowing polymer blends. Evolution of the phase structure in the shear flow will be studied in situ the rheometer having optical detection of the phase structure. The phase structure of solidified blends, formed in complex flow fields in mixers and processing devices, will be studied on solidified samples by electron microscopy. The accent will be put to experiments or theoretical interpretation of the result with respect to applicant interests.
