Interactions of hydrophobically modified polyvinylamine with pluronic triblock copolymer micelles.

The heats associated with the addition of triblock copolymers of ethylene oxide and propylene oxide (PEO-PPO-PEO pluronics) to solutions of linear polyvinylamine, with N-substituted pendant octyl groups (HMPVAm), were measured as functions of pH and pluronic structure. The interactions were exothermic with the overall enthalpy decreasing with increasing pH… CONTINUE READING
