Abstract: Abstract Interfacial tension is one of the most important parameters that govern the morphology of polymer blends and the quality of adhesion between polymers. However, few data are available on interfacial tension due to experimental difficulties. A pendant drop apparatus was used for the determination of the interfacial tension for the polymer pair polypropylene/polystyrene (PP/PS). The effects of temperature and molecular weight were evaluated. The range of temperatures used was from 178° to 250°C, and the…
