Summary

1H solid-state spin diffusion NMR spectroscopy was applied to calculate domain sizes of separated phases in poly(phthalamide)/poly(dimethylsiloxane) block copolymers. To initiate spin diffusion, the dipolar filter technique was used. The correlation between longer PDMS chains in the copolymer and bigger domains of the PDMS phase could be shown.
