Abstract
Using a mean-field model, the segmental interaction parameters of various polymer blends based on styrene and 2,6-dimethyl-phenylene oxide derivatives are revised using new experimental results and the 'best fit values' are established. The predictive qualities of the model are shown and suggestions about group-contribu­tion method are made, Calculations based on the revised segmental interaction parameters are in excellent agreement with the experimental data.
