Amphiphilic Block Copolymers Synthesized via RAFT: Stimulus-Induced Nanoscale Assembly and Cross-Linking In Aqueous Media
Polymers and High Performance Materials
In this chapter we present an overview of amphiphilic block copolymer systems synthesized via reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization in our group. The solution behavior of these systems as a function of temperature, pH, or electrolyte concentration is discussed. In addition, an overview of the cross-linking of such systems utilizing covalent cross-linking, interpolyelectrolyte complexation, or in situ metal chelation is presented.
