Exposure of amorphous poly(ether ether ketone) (PEEK) to the organic solvent 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane (TCE) was found to have considerable effects on the physical and spectral properties of PEEK. TCE causes significant bulk swelling, as well as inducing polymer chain crystallization. Lewis acid-base interactions between the polymer and the solvent are the likely explanation for this enhanced solvent compatibility
