Abstract

The micellization on surfaces of copoly(2-oxazoline) diblock copolymers consisting of a crystallizable poly(2-nonyl-2-oxazoline) (pNonOx) block linked to a poly(2-ethyl-2-oxazoline) (pEtOx) block is studied. Those micelles are not pre-existing in the initial ethanol soln. but are formed during the spin-coating process by the evapn. of the solvent inducing the pptn. of the less sol. pNonOx block. The morphol. and size of the surface micelles vary according to the pNonOx molar fraction in the copolymers. Reorganization of the micelles and evolution of the surface energies after a thermal annealing are also studied. [on SciFinder (R)]
