Three types of amphiphatic macro-RAFT agents were employed as compatibilizers to promote the polymerization reaction at the surface of nanoceria for the synthesis of CeO2-based hybrid latexes. Macro-RAFT copolymers and terpolymers were first synthesized employing various combinations of butyl acrylate as a hydrophobic monomer and acrylic acid (AA) and/or(More)
Hybrid latexes based on cerium oxide nanoparticles are synthesized via an emulsifier-free process of emulsion polymerization employing amphiphatic macro-RAFT agents. Poly(butyl acrylate-co-acrylic acid) random oligomers of various compositions and chain lengths are first obtained by RAFT copolymerization in the presence of a trithiocarbonate as controlling(More)
The physicochemical properties of polyion complex (PIC) micelles were investigated in order to characterize the cores constituted of electrostatic complexes of two oppositely charged polyelectrolytes. The pH-sensitive micelles were obtained with double hydrophilic block copolymers containing a poly(acrylic acid) block linked to a modified poly(ethylene(More)
Using aminoglycoside antibiotics as drug models, it was shown that electrostatic complexes between hydrophilic drugs and oppositely charged double-hydrophilic block copolymers can form ordered mesophases. This phase behavior was evidenced by using poly(acrylic acid)-block-poly(ethylene oxide) block copolymers in the presence of silica precursors, and this(More)
