The temperature and pH dependent self-assembly of three star shaped ethylene oxide-propylene oxide (EO-PO) block copolymers (Tetronics® 304, 904 and 908) with widely different hydrophobicity was examined in aqueous solutions. Physico-chemical methods viz. viscosity, cloud point, solubilization along with thermal, scattering and spectral techniques shows strongly temperature and salt dependent solution behavior. T304 possessing low molecular weight did not form micelles; moderately hydrophilic… CONTINUE READING
