Self-Assembly in a Mixture of Two Poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(propylene oxide)-b-poly(ethylene oxide) Copolymers in Water

The self-assembly behavior in water of a mixture of two poly (ethylene oxide)-b-poly(propylene oxide)-b-poly(ethylene oxide) copolymers, (EO)13(PO)30(EO)13 (L64) and (EO)37(PO)58(EO)37 (P105), was explored at 25°C. The phase boundaries were established using 2H-NMR and inspection under polarized light; the structure of the various lyotropic liquid… CONTINUE READING
