Self-oscillating micelles

Author affiliations


Rhythmic oscillation of the scattering intensity and hydrodynamic radii of a block copolymer solution driven by the Belousov–Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction was demonstrated without any on–off switching of external stimuli. This is the first report on a synthetic block copolymer that realizes the novel concept of self-assembly assisted by a dissipative structure.
