Polymer blends offer diverse benefits: improvements in the final properties of polymer-based materials, a reduction in costs and the use of environmentally friendly materials. Blend miscibility is central to the development of microstructure and morphology. In this work, using calorimetry, the blend poly(3-hydroxybutyrate)/diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA) was found to be miscible. Likewise, from the results of small-angle X-ray scattering, the lamellar structure of the crystalline poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) was observed to suffer changes due to the insertion of amorphous DGEBA.
