The process of physical ageing in a blend of deuterated and hydrogenated poly(ethylene terephalate) has been investigated using a combination of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). The development of an endothermic peak on the glass transition has been shown using DSC. Furthermore, the radius of gyration was found to decrease during physical ageing. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V.
