Abstract:

Preliminary results of studies of polymer surface and interfacial tensions are described. These properties have been measured for immiscible binary blends, rubber modified epoxies, and functionally terminated polydimethyl siloxane oligomers, using a novel apparatus for video image analysis of pendant fluid drop profiles. In addition, the surface structure of miscible blends of polyvinyl methyl ether and polystyrene have been measured by angle-resolved x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy experiments.
