Paper: Highly-ordered onion micelles made from amphiphilic highly-branched copolymers

The Royal Society of Chemistry has just published our latest work; a collaboration between University of Bradford, University of Sheffield and Domino UK ltd. This paper, written by Dr Sarah Canning, with Professors Rimmer and Geoghen, shows the use of block poly butyl-methacrylate-co-acrylic acid to create uniform, onion forming micelles at the nanoscale.

Publication: Temperature-dependent structure and dynamics of highly-branched poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) in aqueous solution

Our colleagues in the Geoghegan group at the University of Sheffield have just published a detailed analysis of our highly branched polymer systems using neutron scattering, and neutron spin echo, techniques. This very interesting paper, written with the collaboration of Professor Rimmer, has just been published in Soft Matter.

Paper: The pH-responsive behaviour of poly(acrylic acid) in aqueous solution is dependent on molar mass

Live today our latest research, carried out in collaboration with Sheffield Professor of Physics Mark Geoghegan, is published with the RSC Journal Soft Matter. This paper outlines how even the simplest ‘smart’ polymer model shows unusual and unobserved behaviour despite the maturity of the field.
