Abstract : This article reviews the reported work on thermodynamics of polymer blends in which at least one of the components is a copolymer. Theoretical and experimental studies of miscibility and phase transition and separation behaviors in such systems are summarized. Chapter 2 deals with blends involving random copolymers, including the cases in which a random copolymer AB is mixed with either a homopolymer A, or a homopolymer C, or two homopolymers A and B. Chapter 3 deals with blends involving a block copolymer, and after giving a brief overview of systems containing a pure block copolymer alone, it reviews the blend systems containing a block copolymer AB mixed with a homopolymer A or two homopolymers A and B. Keywords: Microphase Separation; and Micelles.
