A molecular composite made of ionic Kevlar and poly(4-vinyl pyridine) (PVP) was prepared and studied. TEM observations, as well as a qualitative study of transparency and mechanical strength, indicate that the prepared material is a homogeneous molecular composite. Upon heating, there seems to be no indication of phase separation. It is suggested that the driving force for good miscibility is ion-dipole interactions between ionic groups in ionic Kevlar and ionic dipoles in PVP.
