Crystallization of polymer chains confined on a surface greatly influences surface properties. We have grafted comb-like copolymer, consisting of poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) backbone and semicrystalline poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) side chains, on silicon surface and investigated the crystallization of such confined PCL chains upon solvent(More)
Polymer beads have attracted considerable interest for use in catalysis, drug delivery, and photonics due to their particular shape and surface morphology. Electrospinning, typically used for producing nanofibers, can also be used to fabricate polymer beads if the solution has a sufficiently low concentration. In this work, a novel approach for producing(More)
