We obtain the spinodal line of polymer solutions under shear by introducing viscous effects in the Gibbs function and using the experimental values obtained by Wolf et al. [5, 11-13] for the flow curves. In contrast with the usual idea that a shear either enhances or decreases the solubility of a system, we show that it could have both effects in the same system, depending on the composition. We stress the crucial role of the equilibrium contributions in determining the shear-induced shift of the spinodal line. © Copyright 1993 Walter de Gruyter
