Abstract

Aggregation states and dynamics of polymers at the surface are generally different from those in the corresponding bulk state. To what extent they differ from that of the bulk strongly depends on the polymer primary structure. Therefore, finetuning the surface properties of polymers can be achieved by exhibiting control over their structure using precision polymer synthesis. We here show how the polymer design effectively impacts the structure and dynamics at the surfaces.
