Abstract:New experimental data have been collected on thermodynamic properties of solutions of poly(2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene oxide) (PPO) in toluene. The Flory-Huggins interaction parameters g have been determined from light scattering measurements. These values are in agreement with values obtained by osmotic measurements at low concentrations and they allow the calculation of a melting point curve which fits the experimental melting points. No liquid-liquid phase separation can be calculated, as was concluded in a preceding paper. Spinodals could not be detected by light scattering or DSC-measurements. This also indicates that liquid-liquid phase separation does not occur. The phase separation on cooling of a PPO-toluene solution is thus believed to be a crystallization phenomenon.
