The effects of both blending and copolymersiation on local ordering in poly(di-n-alkyl itaconate)s is investigated, as a function of side chain length, using small-angle X-ray scattering. Preliminary results show that local ordering is unaffected by blending in these immiscible materials, however copolymerisation leads to different behaviour. For short side chains the characteristic distance varies smoothly with copolymer composition, but with longer side chains the characteristic separations found for the homopolymers are observed, and these remain unchanged with composition. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
