Abstract
For diblockcopolymers of polybutadiene-poly(ethyleneoxide) (PB-PEO) type, water is a selective solvent. In dependence of the length of both blocks and the block length ratio, these polymers form a multitude of self-assembled structures in solution. In the present work scattering methods are used to investigate the water-soluble polymer PB125-PEO155. It is found to form long rodlike micelles, which are characterized with respect to the aggregate length L, the cross sectional radius R-CS, the radial scattering length density profile sigma(r), and the radial aggregation number N-rad. Model-independent as well as model-based approaches are used for the scattering data analysis. From dynamic light scattering (DLS) and static light scattering (SLS) experiments the weight averaged length L-w of these stiff elongated aggregates is determined to L-w=350 nm. Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) reveals a cross sectional radius of R-CS = 17 nm and in combination with results from the SLS the radial aggregation number is found to be N-rad=70.
