Inverse gas chromatographic data have been obtained for polystyrene, polycarbonate, and two substituted amines used as additives in the polymers. Surface energies have been determined and evaluations made of acid/base interaction parameters and Flory-Huggins χ values for the surface bounded interphase. It was shown that acid/base considerations are implicated in the miscibility of these polymer/additive systems. Surface energy analyses showed that surface and bulk compositions in blends differed whether or not the blend components were miscible. Composition differences were the result of thermodynamic drives to minimize surface free energy. © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
