Self-assembly of PBzMA-b-PDMAEMA diblock copolymer films at the air–water interface and deposition on solid substrates via Langmuir–Blodgett transfer
The aggregation behavior and morphological characteristics of amphiphilic block copolymer polybenzyl methacrylate-block-poly(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (PBzMA-b-PDMAEMA) at the air–water
Amphiphilic 2-ethyl hexyl methacrylate-b-N,N′-dimethylacrylamide diblock copolymer monolayer behaviour at the air-water interface
The surface activities of two amphiphilic diblock copolymers containing 2-ethyl hexyl methacrylate-b-N,N′-dimethylacrylamide (EHMA-b-DMA) possessing hydrophobic segments of different chain lengths
Interfacial organization of Y-shaped rod-coil molecules packed into cylindrical nanoarchitectures.
An interesting vortical morphology was obtained for the Y21 molecule upon deposition of the film onto a mica substrate, which indicates that the substrate chemistry also has an effect on the morphologies during the film-transfer process.
Amphiphilic polymers at interfaces
Self-assembly phenomena in block copolymer systems are attracting considerable interest from the scientific community and industry alike. Particularly interesting is the behavior of amphiphilic
Properties of a poly(ethylene glycol)-block-poly(γ-benzyl l-glutamate)-graft-poly(ethylene glycol) copolymer membrane
Mechanical and chemical properties of the PEG-block-PBLG-graft-PEG copolymer membrane were investigated by tensile testing and contact angle testing and the effects of grafting ratio on the properties were primarilly studied.
Self-Assembling Behavior of Glycerol Monoundecenoate in Water.
The aim of this study was to highlight the behavior of glycerol monoundecenoate (GM-C11:1) in different diluted and concentrated states, and it appears to be an effective molecule for surface treatments for which water retention is important.
Fractal Growth of Giant Amphiphiles in Langmuir-Blodgett Films
Fractal structures have attracted considerable scientific interest, and fractal geometry is an effective tool to study the complicated structure and dynamic processes, such as dilation symmetry of


Internal Interface of a Compressed PEE−PEO Diblock Copolymer Monolayer
Amphiphilic block copolymers consisting of a fluid hydrophobic (poly(ethyl ethylene), PEE) and a hydrophilic (poly(ethylene oxide), PEO) block form monolayers at the air/water interface. With X-ray
Aggregation Behaviors of a Polystyrene-b-poly(methyl methacrylate) Diblock Copolymer at the Air/Water Interface
Aggregation behaviors, in particular, surface micelle formation, of a diblock copolymer A−B, where the A block is polystyrene (PS, surface inactive and water insoluble) and the B block is poly(methyl
Monolayers of diblock copolymer at the air-water interface: the attractive monomer-surface case
Abstract:We have studied both experimentally and theoretically the surface pressure isotherms of copolymers of polystyrene-polyethyleneoxide (PS-PEO) at the air-water interface. The SCMF (single
Bilayer Morphologies of Self-Assembled Crew-Cut Aggregates of Amphiphilic PS-b-PEO Diblock Copolymers in Solution
A wide range of bilayer aggregates, among them tubules, vesicles, large compound vesicles (LCVs), and lamellae, were prepared from various polystyrene-b-poly(ethylene oxide) (PS-b-PEO) diblock
Collapse of poly(ethylene oxide) monolayers
Surface pressure ?r has been measured as a function of surface concentration for poly(ethy1ene oxide) (PEO) surface films, spread onto deionized water at temperatures T from 8 to 28 "C. At fixed
Role of Competitive PEO−Water and Water−Water Hydrogen Bonding in Aqueous Solution PEO Behavior
The behavior of aqueous solutions of poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) is studied theoretically by applying a mean field-like approach which includes the effect of the competition of PEO and water as proton
