Generalized two-dimensional infrared (2D IR) correlation spectroscopy has been applied to the study of the conformational changes and specific interactions in blends of polyethylene adipate (PEA) and cholesteryl palmitate (CP). IR spectra of CP, PEA, and their blends of different compositions: 10/90, 16/84, 32/68, 64/36, and 80/20 have been recorded. In order to apply 2D IR correlation analysis, the samples
are divided into two sets for 2D: set A with high PEA content 0/100, 10/90, 16/84, 32/68 CP/PEA and
set B with high CP content 64/36, 80/20 and 100/0 CP/PEA. The 2D IR synchronous correlation analysis separates the bands of PEA from those of CP. The cross-peaks in 2D IR asynchronous correlation analysis are indicative of the specific interaction or the conformational change in the blends. The bands of C=O,OH and C–O vibrations of PEA, and CH3 and C–O vibrations of CP that are very sensitive to the intermolecular hydrogen bonding effect and consequently the partial miscibility of components, have been assigned by 2D correlation analysis.
