Dispersity under Scrutiny: Phase Behavior Differences between Disperse and Discrete Low Molecular Weight Block Co-Oligomers

An experimental study is presented in which we compare the bulk phase behavior of discrete and (partially) disperse diblock co-oligomers (BCOs) with high χ-low N. To this end, oligomers of dimethylsiloxane (oDMS) and lactic acid (oLA) were synthesized, each having either a discrete number of repeat units or a variable block length. Ligation of the blocks… (More)
