The dynamic and static phase separation behavior in aqueous poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) solutions is highly sensitive to the tacticity of PNIPAM. We investigated the phase separation dynamics of aqueous solutions of PNIPAM with different tacticities (atactic and syndiotactic-rich types) and found that the phase separation dynamics of syndiotactic… CONTINUE READING
