n.1.(Chem.) A hypothetical hydrocarbon, C5H10, metameric with the amylenes, and the nucleus of a large number of derivatives; - so named because regarded as composed of five methylene residues. Cf. Trimethylene, and Tetramethylene.

The miscibility of the three binary pairs (PEN/PEI, PPT/PEI, and PPT/PEI) associated with three polymers in poly(ethylene naphthalate)/poly(pentamethylene terephthalate/poly(ether imide) (PEN/PPT/PEI) blends has been discussed in the last few decades [12-23].

In Gilbert and Hybart's study (4) of aromatic polyester crystallization kinetics, they found poly(pentamethylene terephthalate) with five methylene units crystallized very slowly and concluded that polyesters with an odd number of methylene units are much more difficult to crystallize than polyesters with 2, 4 or 6 methylene units.
Although PTT has an odd number of methylene units in its chemical structure, it did not follow a previous study that an odd-numbered polyester is difficult to crystallize based solely on the crystallization behavior of one odd-numbered poly(pentamethylene terephthalate) and three even-numbered poly(n-methylene terephthalates).
