This paper deals with the compatibility of a chlorine-containing polycarbonate with poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). The polymer-polymer interaction parameter, ~, has been determined from the experimental phase diagram by means of the Flory-Huggins theory. The interfacial tension, interfacial thickness and interfacial density profile have also been calculated from the experimental value of Z by means of Helfand's mean-field treatment. The calculated interracial thickness has been compared to experimental data from optical, transmission and scanning electron microscopy.
