A Call for Judgment: sensible finance for a dynamic economy [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Amar Bhide | Our prosperity requires the enterprise of innumerable individuals and businesses who exercise their imagination and judgment—and bear responsibility for outcomes.

4.5 Copolymerization

The alloying of metals to improve their properties is widespread and although many polymers used today are relatively pure (e.g. polystyrene, nylon), an increasing number are mixtures of two or more polymers. As with metals, one reason for doing this is to increase the range of properties. The major practical problem, however, is that homopolymers blend together with difficulty and even where blends are possible, as in some thermoplastics, phase separation can occur readily.
