Abstract

The structure of two series of model amphiphilic polymer conetworks based on the hydrophilic anionic methacrylic acid was characterized by atomic force microscopy (AFM) and small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). In the first series, the hydrophobic component was the glassy poly(methyl methacrylate), while the rubbery poly(2-butyl-1-octyl methacrylate) constituted the hydrophobic segments in the second series. Each series comprised conetworks in which the hydrophile / hydrophobe ratio was systematically varied as well as conetworks with different architecture of the linear chain: ABA and BAB triblock and statistical. The AFM and SANS measurements indicated nanophase separation in the triblock copolymer-based conetworks and provided the spacing, size and shape of the formed nanodomains.
