Abstract

The local structure of a series of blends of bisphenol-A polycarbonate (BPA-PC) and tetramethyl BPA-PC (TMPC) with various styrene-based polymers (poly(para-chlorostyrene), polystyrene, poly(meta-chlorostyrene) and poly(ortho-chlorostyrene)) has been investigated. Measurements on the D7 diffractometer at ILL were carried out at room temperature. We show that while the amorphous halo of TMPC is only slightly perturbed by blending, major differences are observed in all BPA-PC blends. We conclude that inter-chain correlations in BPA-PC blends are considerably altered compared to the pure component.
