Abstract

A dynamical study was made on demixing of an immiscible polymer blend, whose specimens were prepared by solvent casting and had very finely phase separated structures in the initial stage of the demixing. Light scattering experiments showed the applicability of a scaling rule to the later stage of the growth of phase separation structures. The demixing can be described by a scaling theory proposed by Furukawa.
