A series of amphiphilic random copolymers, consisting of poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate (PEGMA) and 2-(methacryloyloxy)ethyl stearate (SAMA), were synthesized via reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization. The compositions of SAMA and PEGMA in the copolymers were determined by proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) spectroscopy, and these were further used to calculate reactivity ratios of the SAMA and PEGMA monomers using the extended Kelen…
