It's the trust of the editors of this ebook that the popularity of block copolymers as being amphiphilic molecules and sharing universal beneficial properties with different well-studied amphiphiles will end up worthy to either the surfactant and the polymer groups. An target of this publication is to bridge the 2 groups and cross-fertilise different fields. To this finish, major researchers within the box of amphiphilic block copolymer self-assembly, a few having a history in surfactant chemistry, and others with polymer physics roots, have agreed to hitch forces and give a contribution to this book.The e-book comprises 4 entities. the 1st half discusses theoretical concerns at the back of the block copolymer self-assembly in answer and within the soften. the second one half presents case stories of self-assembly in numerous sessions of block copolymers (e.g., polyethers, polyelectrolytes) and in several environments (e.g., in water, in non-aqueous solvents, or within the absence of solvents). The 3rd half provides experimental instruments, starting from static (e.g., small perspective neutron scattering) to dynamic (e.g., rheology), that could turn out important within the characterization of block copolymer self-assemblies. The fourth half deals a sampling of present functions of block copolymers in, e.g., formulations, pharmaceutics, and separations, purposes that are in line with the original self-assembly houses of block copolymers.

B 124, S-221 00 Lund, Sweden The origin of the decreased solubility (clouding) of several ethyleneoxide containing polymers at elevated temperatures are discussed using available data both from theoretical and experimental investigations. It is found that the clouding process is closely related to the conformational equilibrium of the ethyleneoxide chains, and that this equilibrium depends on the properties of the free ethyleneoxide chain, the solvation of the chain, but also to a large extent on the effect that the ethyleneoxide chain has on the effective water - water interaction.
