Abstract

The cloud point of copolymers of 2-ethyl-2-oxazoline and 2-n-propyl-2-oxazoline could be tuned from 25 °C to 100 °C by varying molecular weight and composition; the reversibility and concentration dependence of the cloud points were evaluated to assess the potential of these copoly(2-oxazoline)s as alternatives to poly(N-isopropylacrylamide).
