We focus on the role of functional terminal group combinations for (X-PEO)2-(PS-Y)2 heteroarm star copolymers with respect to their interfacial behavior and surface morphology. We synthesized a series of star copolymers with combinations of bromine, amine, TBDPS, hydroxyl, and carboxylic terminal groups. The study concluded that hydrophilic functional groups attached to hydrophobic chains and hydrophobic functional groups attached to hydrophilic chains resulted in the stabilization of the… CONTINUE READING
