Abstract

Hydrogen bonding between urea groups of amphiphilic tri-block copolymers considerably affects their self-assembly in water, which results in a strong modification of morphology and viscosity of aqueous solutions; the hydrogen bonding motif in these amphiphilic copolymers allows molecular recognition of small molecules with complementary hydrogen bonding units.
