Block Copolymers II by Alejandro J. Müller, Vittoria Balsamo, María Luisa Arnal

By Alejandro J. Müller, Vittoria Balsamo, María Luisa Arnal (auth.), Volker Abetz (eds.)

"Block coplolymers were studied for numerous a long time, a interval that has been punctuated via a couple of books and evaluation articles at the subject. regardless of this heritage, the topic is much from exhausted and, if something, has skilled a powerful renewal lately. This has been speartheaded through an unlimited number of new block copolymers, the real improvement of robust visualization options, AFM specifically, that experience develop into on hand, in addition to motivating visions of nanotechnological applications.
In this context, this new two-volume booklet, with its specialise in the newest advancements within the sector, is well timed. ...."

"These volumes might be thought of quintessential via any newcomer to the sector and may represent an invaluable refererence to many already within the field."

105] when they studied by DSC the crystallization kinetics of 80/20 PCL-b-PEO diblock copolymers. In their case, the PCL block crystallized first from a homogeneous melt and the Avrami parameters K and n were found to be similar to the kinetics parameters of the isothermal crystallization of a corresponding PCL homopolymer. Significant crystallization retardation was found for the PEO block that crystallized second. The retardation was attributed to the “mutual influence between the PEO constituent and the PCL crystal phase which fixes (hardened) the total copolymer structure” [105].
