Abstract
Novel functional polymers and guest-host polymer blends designed for optical and electronic applications are being synthesized and studied to obtain a fundamental understanding of the molecular factors that affect the technological potential of these systems. As a prototype for a polymer blend system in which one component is electronically active, blends of poly (g-phenylene vinylene)(PPV) with several water-soluble, inert, polymers have been studied. Though specific molecular interactions are generally absent in these systems, the presence of the second component has profound effects on many of the properties of PPV in the blend.
