An association model is used to predict phase behaviour in mixtures of poly(hydroxy ether) of bisphenol A (phenoxy) (PH) with poly(alkylene oxide)s, poly(vinyl alkyl ether)s, aromatic polyethers and related copolymers. Equilibrium constants and enthalpies corresponding to self-association of PH and interassociation of PH with the second component were calculated from a Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy study of low molecular weight analogues in dilute solutions. Transferability of the association constants between model compounds and polymer blends, as well as model predictions of blend miscibility and phase diagrams, are discussed.
