Abstract: Blends of two thermotropic liquid crystalline polymers (LCP) based on 6 -o q -2naphthoyl and p-oxybenzoyl moieties and p-oxybenzoyl, terephthaloyl and hydre quinone moieties have been studied. The blends were prepared by melt mixing using a twin screw extruder. Thermal, rheological, mechanical, and morphological studies were camed out. Based on the dynamic mechanical thermal analysis and the morphological observations, the blends are found to be immiscible. The viscosity ratios of pure LCP melts exceed values…
