Scientists image the molecular structure of polymer blends
from National Institute of Standards and Technology via Phys.org
Using an enhanced form of "chemical microscopy," researchers there have shown that they can peer into the structure of blended polymers, resolving details of the molecular arrangement at submicrometer levels. The capability has important implications for the design of industrially important polymers like the polyethylene blends used to repair aging waterlines.
