Abstract Volume 149 of Macromolecular Symposia consists of lectures and selected posters presented at the "6th European Symposium on Polymer Blends". In May 1999, participants from all over the world got together at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany in order to discuss new developments in the area of polymer blends from a both scientific and applied viewpoint. <br /><br />The preparation of a new bifunctional coupling agent with one oxazoline group and one oxazinone group has been described. Model reactions with dodecanoic acid, benzoic acid, n-dodecyl alcohol and n-dodecylamine in melt evidenced that both carboxylic acids react selectively with the oxazoline group whereas the oxazinone group is exclusively attacked by the amino and the hydroxy compound, respectively. In blends of amino group terminated polyethers with a carboxy group containing polyethylene the new coupling agent has proven very effective. <br /><br />ISBN 3-527-30128-3
