AbstractWe present in this work a new model to describe the component segmental dynamics in miscible polymers blends as a function of pressure, temperature, and composition. The model is based on a combination of the Adam-Gibbs (AG) theory and the concept of the chain connectivity. In this paper we have extended our previous approach [D. Cangialosi et al. J. Chem. Phys. 123, 144908 (2005)] to include the effects of pressure in the component dynamics of miscible polymer blends. The resulting model has been tested on poly(vinyl methyl ether) (PVME)/polystyrene (PS) blends at different concentrations and in the temperature range where the system is in equilibrium. The results show an excellent agreement between the experimental and calculated relaxation times using only one fitting parameter. Once this parameter is known the model allows calculating the size of the relevant length scale where the segmental relaxation of the dielectrically active component takes place, i.e., the so called cooperative rearrangement region (CRR) in the AG framework. Thus the size of the CRR for PVME in the blends with PS has been determined as well as its dependence with pressure, temperature, and concentration.
