Abstract: The miscibility of poly(1-vinylimidazole) (PVI) with some hydroxyl- and carboxyl-containing polymers was studied. Each of the binary blends or complexes of PVI with poly(p-vinylphenol) (PVPh), poly(2-hydroxypropyl methacrylate) (PHPMA) and poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) showed a single glass transition temperature (Tg), indicating miscibility. However, PVI is immiscible with poly(styrene-co-allyl alcohol) (SAA) and poly(hydroxyether of bisphenol-A) (Phenoxy) as shown by the appearance of two Tg's in each of the blends. Based on the frequency shifts of the hydroxyl band of the hydroxyl-containing polymers, the intensities of hydrogen bonding interactions between PVI and hydroxyl-containing polymers are in the order PVPh > PHPMA > SAA and Phenoxy. PVI interacts with PAA via ionic interaction. © WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH, D-69451 Weinheim 1999.
