The interaction of poly(styrene-co-allyl alcohol) and aliphatic polyester was studied using FT-IR spectroscopy. The hydrogen bonding between two polymers was investigated by monitoring C=O and OH stretching modes with the variation of concentration and temperature. The phase-separated morphology was also observed using FT-IR imaging, where the spectroscopic analysis of each phase is available.
