Temperature- and pH-responsive micelles with collapsible poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) headgroups.
Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) shows that these surfactants self-assemble into micelles consisting of a nearly spherical hydrophobic core surrounded by a "hairy" polyNIPAM shell far below their LCST.

Polyelectrolyte shells of copolymer micelles in aqueous solutions: a Monte Carlo study.
Multimolecular micelles, formed by polystyrene-block-poly(methacrylic acid) in water, are studied by lattice Monte Carlo method and the dependence of micellar size on pH and ionic strength is calculated and compared with experimental data.
Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) Phase Diagrams: Fifty Years of Research.
The reported phase diagrams of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) are surveyed, the differences and comment on theoretical ideas regarding their possible origins are discussed, and open questions in this reputably mature domain are alerted.
End group effect on the thermal response of narrow-disperse poly (n -isopropylacrylamide) prepared by atom transfer radical polymerization
Four series of narrow-disperse poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) with well-controlled molecular weights and with end groups of varying hydrophobicity were synthesized by room temperature atom
Thermo-induced aggregation behavior of poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) block copolymers in the presence of cationic surfactants.
The thermo-induced aggregation behavior was found to be profoundly influenced with the cooperation of cationic surfactants in terms of T(agg) and the structural characteristics of the aggregates formed at high temperature.
Dispersion of polystyrene inside polystyrene‐b‐poly(N‐isopropylacrylamide) micelles in water
The addition of mixture of polystyrene-b-poly(N-isopro- pylacrylamide) (PS-b-PNIPAM) and polystyrene homopolymer (h- PS) in tetrahydrofuran dropwise into water leads to nanoparticles with a PS core
