The unusual aggregation behavior of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-based amphiphilic block copolymers was investigated by a combination of dynamic and static laser light scattering, AFM, and 1H NMR. The results revealed that PS-b-PNIPAM always forms large micelle aggregates in the transition process from an organic solvent to water due to the cononsolvency… CONTINUE READING
