Nonionic Block Copolymer Coacervates

Aoon Rizvi

PhD Candidate, UC Irvine

This is one of the first examples of nonionic block copolymers used to form coacervates and manipulate them to create materials over multiple length scales! In-situ TEM also allowed to image the coacervate formation at the nano-scale which supplemented the proposed mechanism of the final self-assembled structures. The condensate community looking for simple and easily synthesized polymers to form coacervate based material should find this interesting!
