The association properties of poly(ethylene oxide)-b/ock-poly(propylene oxidel block-poly(ethylene oxidel IPEO PPO PEOI copolymers (commercially available as Poloxamers and Pluronics) in aqueous solutions, and the adsorption of these copolymers at interfaces are reviewed. At low temperatures and/'or concentrations the PEO PPO PEO copolymers exist in… CONTINUE READING
