Abstract

The formation of micelles on surfaces by spin-coating dilute solutions of diblock, triblock, and tetrablock copoly(2-oxazoline)s in a non-selective solvent is demonstrated. The micelles are not preexistent in the initial solution but are formed during the evaporation of the solvent by precipitation of the least-soluble block. The morphology and size of the micelles vary according to the fraction of this block but are not dependent on the block order in the copolymer.
