Abstract: Abstract Dynamic viscoelastic properties of blends of alkali metal salts of sulfonated polystyrene ionomers with polyamide 6 were investigated in the melt. The blends of lithium‐sulfonated polystyrene (10 mol% sulfonation) with polyamide 6 (LiSPS/PA‐6) behaved as a homogeneous viscoelastic fluid over most of the blend composition range, since blending with PA‐6 disrupted the ionic network of the LiSPS. Specific interactions between the lithium sulfonate group and the amide group are believed to be responsible…
