Abstract

The goal of this program was to form and demonstrate improved mechanical properties of biaxially oriented films of 30/70 rod-coil polymer blends of PBZT/ABPBT. These polymeric blends were prepared at three different solids contents C<CCR, C≳CCR and C>CCR.

Our approach examined PBZT and ABPBT in poly phosphoric acid (PPA) as the common solvent for the first time. Also, we set out to go one step beyond the current state of the art and produce biaxially oriented PBZT reinforced ABPBT molecular composites. Our investigation marked the first time such a study has been attempted. Additionally, fibers of C≳CCR were spun and characterized.
