SUBCOMMITTEE ON MACROMOLECULAR TERMINOLOGY
Definition of terms related to polymer blends, composites, and multiphase polymeric materials (IUPAC Recommendations 2004)

Abstract: The document defines the terms most commonly encountered
in the field of polymer blends and composites. The scope has been limited
to mixtures in which the components differ in chemical composition or
molar mass and in which the continuous phase is polymeric. Incidental
thermodynamic descriptions are mainly limited to binary mixtures although,
in principle, they could be generalized to multicomponent mixtures.
The document is organized into three sections. The first defines terms
basic to the description of polymer mixtures. The second defines terms
commonly encountered in descriptions of phase domain behavior of polymer
mixtures. The third defines terms commonly encountered in the descriptions
of the morphologies of phase-separated polymer mixtures.
