Abstract [en]

The adsorption behavior of bottle-brush polymers with different charge/PEO ratio on silica was studied using optical reflectometry and QCM-D. The results obtained under different solution conditions clearly demonstrate the existence of two distinct adsorption mechanisms depending on the ratio of charge/PEO. In the case of low-charge density brush polymers (0-10 mol %), the adsorption occurs predominantly through the PEO side chains. However, the presence of a small amount of charge along the backbone (as low as 2 mol %) increases the adsorption significantly above that of the uncharged bottle-brush polymer in pure water. As the charge density of the brush polymers is increased to 25 mol % or larger the adsorption occurs predominantly through electrostatic interactions. The adsorbed layer structure was studied by measuring the layer dissipation using QCM-D. The adsorbed layer formed by the uncharged brush polymer dissipates only a small amount of energy that indicates that the brush lie along the surface, the scenario in which the maximum number of PEO side chains interact with the surface. The adsorbed layers formed by the low-charge density brush polymers (2-10 mol %) in water are more extended, which results in large energy dissipation, whereas those formed by the high-charge density brush polymers (50-100 mol %) have their backbone relatively flat on the surface and the energy dissipation is again low.
