Multiblock Copolymer/Homopolymer Blends

ByNikos K. Kalfoglou, Ioannis K. Kallitsis, Efstathia G. Koulouri

Blends o f multiblock copolymers with different homopolymers are reviewed in this chapter. More specifically, poly(ether ester) (PEE) o f different compositions (soft versus hard segments) and thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) (polyether urethanes, PU-eth, and polyester urethanes, PU-est) are the two m ultiblock copolymers studied the most. Lim ited work was carried out with other copoly­ mers, such as polyester amides and polyether amides; this is summarized and pre­ sented in Sec. III.c.
