Bioartificial polymeric materials based on blends of dextran and poly(acrylic acid) were prepared in form of films and characterized in order to evaluate the miscibility of the natural component with the synthetic one. Films with different composition ratios were prepared by solution casting sind analyzed by dynamic mechanical-thermal analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, and scanning electron microscopy. The obtained results indicate that dextran is miscible with poly(acrylic acid). The miscibility was mainly ascertained on the bases of the occurrence of a single composition-dependent glass transition temperature in each blend and also on the bases of the transparency and homogeneity of the films.
