Abstract

The thermodynamic properties of binary linear polymer blends were studied using Monte Carlo tests of the lattice cluster theory. Several thermodynamic quantities were exactly numerated by computer simulation. Nine blend compositions, with total monomer volume fraction held fixed, were simulated. The results depicted same polymerization indices of different polymer species.
