Polymer networks consisting of complementary four functional stars of poly ethylene glycol (PEG) and poly caprolactone (PCL) were synthesized via covalent coupling of complementary end groups. The equilibrium swelling in various solvents revealed either compatibility of both polymer components with good solvents for both of them like THF or toluene, or a reduced swelling in a polar solvent like water, representing a selective solvent for the PEG component only. Complementary X-ray scattering studies allowed to assign the structure factor to a swollen conetwork (in THF or toluene), or to a swollen PEG component connecting embedded clusters of PCL (in water). These experimental results were accompanied by simulations of network formation as a function of polymer concentration during preparation, and subsequent swelling in a cosolvent or a selective solvent. The calculated structure factor arising from the simulated model networks reveals a typical length scale for the size and distance of the PCL clusters, in reasonable agreement with the dependence of the observed scattering intensity on wave vector.
