Abstract

Interfaces of polymers with "non-solvents" play an important role in their functional properties such as wettability, friction with lubricants, cell adhesion, and biocompatibility. To design and construct highly functionalized polymers for applications that exploit these characteristics, aggregation states of the polymers at the liquid interfaces must be understood as the first benchmark. However, this is experimentally difficult because such interfaces are buried. In this review, we introduce recent development of the issue with the advent of modem experimental techniques.
