This study introduces a technique developed for the quantitative measurement of the kinetics of dispersed phase particle coalescence in polymer blends. The method has been shown to be useful and reproducible for the study of morphology development and stability in polymer melt blending. Using this technique, we examined the relative importance of reactive compatibilizers, shear history and matrix phase viscosity on the morphological stability of PC/SAN blends.
