Vesicular assembly and thermo-responsive vesicle-to-micelle transition from an amphiphilic random copolymer

Author affiliations

Abstract

Vesicular assembly from a thermo-responsive amphiphilic random copolymer is reported. Vesicle-to-micelle transition above a critical morphology transition temperature (CMTT) resulted in selective triggered release of encapsulated hydrophilic guests over hydrophobic ones. The aggregation pattern of a control polymer indicated a defined role of the methacrylamide groups in the polymer backbone for such unprecedented self-assembly from a simple polymer.
