Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedingBook Chapterpeer-review


In this chapter, we have presented different aspects of polymer blends, from fundamentals to the synthesis, physical and chemical properties, and applications. Polymer blends are made from the combination of two or more polymer components, having staggering and incredible applications in numerous fields due to their advanced properties. A brief introduction of the polymer blends about its origination and development is presented in the first part of this chapter; then important polymer blend types and synthesis methods are summarized with a brief discussion about their thermodynamic properties. Different characterization techniques were also discussed which can be used to determine the morphological, structural, chemical, and mechanical properties of these materials. The thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties of different polymer blends are discussed considering some recent applications of polymer blends in different industries.
