Abstract
The poly(styrene)-block-poly(2-vinylpyridine)-block-poly(ethylene oxide) triblock copolymer PS200-b-P2VP(140)-b-PEO590, where the subscripts refer to the number average degrees of polymerization, forms spherical micelles in water, that consist of a PS core, a pH-responsive P2VP shell and a PEO corona. This triblock has been added with homo-PS before micellization in order to increase the volume fraction of the core-forming block. The length of the added homo-PS has been varied with respect to the length of the PS core-forming block: much shorter, much longer and approximately the same. The structure of the micelles has been investigated by transmission electron ...
