Abstract

Experimental data presented which shows that not all blends of two liquid crystal polymers display the same miscibility characteristics. This is contrary to ideas of small molecule liquid crystal mixtures. This observation is interpreted in terms of existing blend theories, which are found to be inadequate descriptions of the behavior. It is suggested that the entropic portion of the free energy of mixing needs to be reconsidered to correctly describe liquid crystal polymer blends, and perhaps, blends in general.
