Behavior of methacrylate star copolymers in solutions

Polimery 2016, No 6, 413

DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2016.413


This paper describes two kinds of star polymers with homopolymer arms made of N,N-dimethylamino­ethyl methacrylate (PDMAEMA) and with random copolymer arms of N,N-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate and di(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate (PDMAEMA-co-PDEGMA), which were synthesized via "core first” method. Hydrodynamic radii were determined and the behavior of obtained polymers in organic solvents and in aqueous solutions were studied. The effect of pH and temperature on the zeta potential and hydrodynamic radii of polymers particles were also investigated.
Keywords: star copolymer, solution behavior, effect of pH, thermosensitivity
