Controlled thermoreversible transfer of poly(oxazoline) micelles between an ionic liquid and
Poly(2-nonyl-2-oxazoline-block-2-ethyl-2-oxazoline) block copolymer micelles were investigated as an alternative system to the approach proposed by He and Lodge (Y. He and T. P. Lodge, J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2006, 128, 12666) for the thermoreversible transfer of micelles between a hydrophobic ionic liquid phase and an aqueous phase; this work describes the possibility of thermally triggering and controlling this process.
