Influence of Dipole Orientation on Solution Properties of Polyzwitterions

An article by Svetlana Morozova, Gaojie Hu, Todd Emrick, and M. Muthukumar published in ACS Macro Letters.

Muthukumar’s group and their collaborators have studied the influence of segmental dipole orientation on the solution properties of polyzwitterions using dynamic and static light scattering of poly(2- methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine) (PMPC), n-butylsubstituted choline phosphate polymers (PMBP), and their diblock (PMPC-b-PMBP) copolymers in solutions of different salt concentration. They find that these three structures exhibit dramatically different aggregation behaviors.
