Journal Article
Ward, M. A., & Georgiou, T. K. (2013). Multicompartment thermoresponsive gels: Does the length of the hydrophobic side group matter?. Polymer chemistry, 4(6), (1893-1902). doi:10.1039/c2py21032k. ISSN 1759-9954

Multicompartment thermoresponsive gels are novel materials with fascinating self-assembly and interesting applications. The aim of this study was to investigate for the first time the effect of the length of the alkyl side group of a hydrophobic mono... Read More

Thermoresponsive triblock copolymers based on methacrylate monomers: Effect of molecular weight and composition (2012)
Journal Article
Ward, M. A., & Georgiou, T. K. (2012). Thermoresponsive triblock copolymers based on methacrylate monomers: Effect of molecular weight and composition. Soft matter, 8(9), (2737-2745). doi:10.1039/c2sm06743a. ISSN 1744-683X

A series of amphiphilic thermoresponsive ABC triblock copolymers was synthesised by Group Transfer Polymerisation (GTP). In total nine polymers were prepared based on the non-ionic hydrophobic n-butyl methacrylate (BuMA), the ionisable hydrophilic an... Read More
