    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract We present an overview of statistical thermodynamic theories that describe the self-assembly of amphiphilic ionic/hydrophobic diblock copolymers in dilute solution. Block copolymers with both strongly and weakly dissociating (pH-sensitive) ionic blocks are considered. We focus mostly on structural and morphological transitions that occur in self-assembled aggregates as a response to varied environmental conditions (ionic strength and pH in the solution). Analytical theory is complemented by a numerical self-consistent field approach. Theoretical predictions are compared to selected experimental data on micellization of ionic/hydrophobic diblock copolymers in aqueous solutions.
