homogeneous polymer blend

Also contains definition of: miscible polymer blend
@P04736@ that is a single-phase structure.
  1. Modified from previous definition. The definition proposed here is preferred because it emphasizes the requirement for homogeneity over @MT07230@.
  2. For a @P04736@ to be miscible it must obey the thermodynamic criteria of @MT07230@.
  3. @MT07230@ is sometimes assigned erroneously on the basis that a blend exhibits a single \(T_{\textrm{g}}\) or is optically clear.
  4. The miscible system can be thermodynamically @S05900@ or @M03872@.
  5. For components of chain structures that would be expected to be miscible, @MT07230@ may not occur if molecular architecture is changed, e.g., by @CT07136@.
