We report the synthesis and characterization of three novel azobenzene-containing miktoarm star polymers AB3 (Mn = 14 800, DM = 1.22, Mn = 17 400, DM = 1.10 and Mn = 26 200, DM = 1.12) as well as their self-assembly properties in water. The three polymers are composed of an azopolymer and three identical arms of poly(N,N-diethylacrylamide) (PDEAA), featuring thermo-responsive properties. By carefully selecting the polymerization degree of PDEAA, and consequently the hydrophobic/hydrophilic ratio, a specific miktoarm polymer has been identified that forms stable micelles in water as is clearly revealed by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). In addition, the thermo- and photo-responsive properties of the polymeric micelles in water were investigated. Encapsulation of Nile Red was probed via fluorescence spectroscopy as well as its release from the loaded probes triggered by UV irradiation, which causes a trans-to-cis isomerisation of the azobenzene moieties. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

27 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
26 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.
