Ghasdian, N., Buzza, D. M. A., Fletcher, P. D. I., & Georgiou, T. K. (2015). ABC triblock copolymer micelles: Spherical versus worm-like micelles depending on the preparation method. Macromolecular rapid communications, 36(6), (528-532). doi:10.1002/marc.201400621. ISSN 1022-1336

Well-defined ABC triblock copolymers based on two hydrophilic blocks, A and C, and a hydrophobic block B are synthesized and their self-assembly behaviour is investigated. Interestingly, at the same solvent concentration, pH, and temperature, differe... Read More

Water-in-water emulsions based on incompatible polymers and stabilized by triblock copolymers-templated polymersomes (2013)
Journal Article
Buzza, D. M. A., Fletcher, P. D. I., Georgiou, T. K., & Ghasdian, N. (2013). Water-in-water emulsions based on incompatible polymers and stabilized by triblock copolymers-templated polymersomes. Langmuir : the ACS journal of surfaces and colloids, 29(48), 14804-14814. doi:10.1021/la403356j

Aqueous solutions containing a mixture of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and dextran homopolymers form an aqueous two-phase system which can be emulsified to give a water-in-water emulsion. We show how these emulsions can be stabilized using triblock poly... Read More
