Dynamic light scattering and cryogenic transmission electron microscopy investigations on metallo-supramolecular aqueous micelles: evidence of secondary aggre... Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Metallo-supramolecular diblock copolymers consisting of a polystyrene (PS) block connected to a poly (ethylene oxide)(PEO) block by a bis (terpyridine) ruthenium complex (PS 20-[Ru]-PEO y) were used to prepare aqueous micelles. The length of the PS block was kept constant, while two PEOs of different molecular weight were used. The resulting hydrated micelles and aggregates were characterized by a combination of cryogenic transmission electron microscopy (cryo-TEM) and dynamic light scattering measurements …
