  • functional materials;
  • block copolymer synthesis by melt transesterification;
  • competing reactions;
  • mixing behavior


Two quite similar systems, PSU-PET/PEI and PSU-PET/HBA, used for the BCP synthesis, were investigated. The main aspect of the investigation was the dependence of mixing behavior on the interaction parameter χ, the melt viscosity ratio λ as well as the block molecular weights.
