Topics include miscibility in binary mixtures, micro-phase separations in two-dimensional amphiphile systems, diffusion processes, delayed degradation of drugs, and phase behaviors in various configurations.
However, if the molecular weight increases too much, it would eventually decrease the miscibility and cause phase separation [28-30], By a relative increase in molecular weight of the plasticizer, the tendency for migration would decrease, and miscibility could be maintained through the polar interactions.

Overall, performance of liquid HFCs was determined to be comparable to that of HCFC-141b, although HFCs have reduced solubility and miscibility in polyols.
The miscibility and phase behavior of epoxy/PPO blend have been studied by several research groups [6-10], PPO is thermodynamically immiscible with epoxy resin, and the phase separation occurs in their blends, which is more significant for the PPO with high molecular weight.
The main problem rubber mixers have to deal with is the poor miscibility of sulfur due to its polarity.

You have to adjust the chemistry to get miscibility of the two materials.
2, significant partial miscibility between the PC and PDMS blocks occurred and, as expected, the degree of partial miscibility decreased with increasing block molecular weight.
