Abstract

Stimuli responsive materials are intelligent materials for various potential applications, i.e. drug delivery systems, membrane technol. and actuators. Lower crit. soln. temp. behavior of polymers is unique for these applications. However, there are crit. requirements for these materials i.e. sharp cloud points at different values, chem. functionalities on the polymer and a need to test many materials in a short period of time. In this contribution, we focus on how to overcome of above mentioned requirements and subsequently, we explain not only the results but also the techniques of synthesis and characterization of several homo- and co- polymer libraries of methacrylic acid and oligoethyleneglycol methacrylate that were synthesized by utilizing automated parallel synthesizers.
