This study describes the synthesis and solution properties of the novel linear–dendritic block copolymers (LDBCs) based on thermoresponsive poly(N-vinylcaprolactam) (PNVCL) chains and pH-responsive poly(benzyl ether) dendrons. The peripherally methyl ester-functionalized LDBCs (CH3OOC-Gn-b-PNVCL) were first synthesized via atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) of N-vinylcaprolactam (NVCL) using first- and second-generation dendritic poly(benzyl ether) chlorides with methyl ester…
