Abstract: Abstract In this study, an interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) based on a polyurethane (PU) and a partially end‐capped unsaturated polyester (UPE) was prepared. The reaction‐induced phase separation process of the IPN was studied using a phase contrast optical microscope and a transmission electron microscope (TEM), while reaction kinetics and onset of gelation were determined by a differential scanning calorimeter and a rheometer respectively. Except at low temperatures, the phase separation patterns were…
