This invention is a polymer blend prepared by the polymerization of a ring opening or condensation polymer in the presence of a syndiotactic polystyrene (SPS) polymer. Such a process eliminates an extra compounding since the two components are mixed during the condensation or ring opening polymerization reactor. In addition to economic advantages, this invention would offer blends with improved properties due to superior mixing.
