Summary It is demonstrated that dilute solution light —scattering experiments under ‘optical θconditions’ offer rapid and reliable judgement of the interaction parameters in polymer blends. This has been verified with miscible blends of polystyrene with poly(vinylmethylether) and with the immiscible pair polystyrene —poly(vinylisobutylether). The capabilities of the optical θ-approach in order to derive the influence of polymerpolymer interaction on chain dimensions are discussed shortly.
