Preparation and characterization of compositionally uniform hydrogel materials with narrow molecular weight distribution

Polymerizations are controlled with predictable molecular weights and narrow molecular weight distributions:

Block copolymers with polystyrene spontaneously self assemble to form periodic structures:

By polymerizing at the compositional azeotrope, we are able to make statistical copolymers of poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate-co-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate) of uniform compositions and narrow molecular weight distributions. When polymerized from a polystyrene macroinitiator, the resulting diblock copolymers spontaneously self assemble to form periodic nanostructures
