Abstract

We investigated the self-assembling behavior of hydrophobically end-capped polyethylene glycol) (PEG) in aqueous solution in both dilute regime and semi-dilute regime in a wide temperature range by light scattering and small-angle neutron scattering. The results from the analysis on the micelle structure, interchain interactions, and structure factor effects are all consistent with a decrease in solvent quality for PEG as temperature is increase. We also studied the changes in the morphologies of hydrophobically end-capped PEG by applying a specific shear rate and amplitude by in-situ small-angle neutron scattering and rheology.
