Abstract
Phase separation of polymer mixtures of tetramethyl bisphenol-A polycarbona te (TMPC) and polystyrene (PS) was studied by real-time small angle neutron scattering. Depending on the blending method (solution casting or melt mix ing), samples are shown to exhibit different kinetics of spinodal decomposi tion and subsequent coarsening.
