Since the historical synthesis by Millar (1) and major work of Sperling and his co-workers (2-5) and Frisch and his co-workers (6-9), interpenetrating polymer network (IPNs) has attained great importance from both the academic and the technological points of view. Although IPNs are the youngest polymers in the field of blends and composites, they have proved to be excellent engineering materials. As a result, IPN research has become an area of global interest during the last two decades. Investigations in this direction have grown enormously (10-12). Many sophisticated and comparatively easier techniques of synthesis and their synergistic behaviour have made various patents for commercial products of a broad range of applications (13). IPN possesses several interesting characteristics in comparison to normal polyblends.
