    Abstract

    The physical properties of crystalline/crystallinte polymer blends of polyethylene oxide)/poly(hexamethylene succinate)(PEO/PHS) were examined by tesile test. The structure was examined by polarizing optical microscopy(POM). PEO/PHS blends of several blend ratios were prepared.The elongation and the tensile strength of PEO was lower than those of PHS. Thus, in PEO/PHS blends those values decreased as the addition of PEO. As a result tensile properties of PEO/PHS blends take a middle value between PEO and PHS; it did not change dramatically by blend ratios. The formation of interpenetrated spherulites were confirmed by POM for all blend samples.
