Representative observations are presented for commercial homopolymers and blends to illustrate the utility of the dielectric method as an analytical technique for polymers. Its sensitivity ensures that dielectric spectroscopy is appropriate for the investigation of phase morphology and miscibility and for the characterization of changes induced by irradiation or the presence of additives.
