Amphiphilic block copolymers composed of poly(butyl acrylate) and poly(2-acryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine) have been prepared using reversible addition fragmentation transfer (RAFT) polymerisation. The conversion of the polymerisation was determined using online FT NTR spectroscopy. NMR spectroscopy was used not only to support the results obtained from FT NIR spectroscopy but also prove the formation of micelles. Due to the strong aggregation tendency of these block copolymers and the resulting difficulties concerning the molecular weight analysis test experiments were carried out replacing poly(2- acryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine) with poly(2-hydroxyethyl acrylate). Micelle size and the aggregation behaviour were investigated using dynamic light scattering. The sizes of the nanocontainers obtained were found to be influenced by the block length as well as the solvent leading to micelles in the range between 40 and 160 nm. The toxicity of the RAFT agent used was then analysed by cell growth inhibition tests.

101 citations in Web of Science®

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
