Abstract: Abstract The prediction of polymer/polymer miscibility is addressed using analog calorimetry and molecular modeling. For each polymer, an analog compound representing one or two repeat units was chosen. Heat‐of‐mixing was measured for liquid mixtures of analog compounds and then used in a binary interaction model to predict polymer miscibility. Specifically, we have measured exothermic heats‐of‐mixing for 4‐ethyl phenol, an analog of poly(vinly phenol), with several analogs containing ether, ester, or ketone …
