Focuses on a polymer blend made of two crosslinked polymers A and B of different chemical nature, in the presence of a common solvent assumed to be good for both species. Solvent effects on the microphase separation of the mixture; Calculation of the structure factor that enables the derivation of all microphase critical properties.
