Abstract [en]

A nonionic-cationic diblock copolymer, poly(2-isopropyl-2-oxazoline) 60-b-poly((3-acrylamidopropyl)trimethylammonium chloride) 17, (PIPOZ60-b-PAMPTMA17), was utilized to electrostatically tether temperature-responsive PIPOZ chains to silica surfaces by physisorption. The effects of polymer concentration, pH, and temperature on adsorption were investigated using quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring and ellipsometry. The combination of these two techniques allows thorough characterization of the adsorbed layer in terms of surface excess, thickness, and water content. The high affinity of the cationic PAMPTMA 17 block to the negatively charged silica surface gives rise to a high affinity adsorption isotherm, leading to (nearly) irreversible adsorption with respect to dilution. An increase in solution pH lowers the affinity of PIPOZ to silica but enhances the adsorption of the cationic block due to increasing silica surface charge density, which leads to higher adsorption of the cationic diblock copolymer. Higher surface excess is also achieved at higher temperatures due to the worsening of the solvent quality of water for the PIPOZ block. Interestingly, a large hysteresis in adsorbed mass and other layer properties was observed when the temperature was cycled from 25 to 45 °C and then back to 25 °C. Possible causes for this temperature hysteresis are discussed.
