Abstract: Abstract Blends of poly(ethylene terephthalate‐co‐p‐oxybenzoate), PET/PHB, with poly(butylene terephthtalate), PBT, have been studied in the form of as‐spun and drawn fibers. DSC melting and crystallization studies of blend fibers show a single melting endotherm, corresponding to PBT crystallites and a decrease in the crystallization of PBT by the addition of LCP in the matrix. X‐ray diffraction patterns of the blends exhibit mainly all the reflections of the homopolymer component (PBT). However, the diffused…
