Mechano-responsive polymer solutions based on CO2 supersaturation: shaking-induced phase transitions and self-assembly or dissociation of polymeric nanoparticles
MetadataShow full item record
Mechanical stimulation of supersaturated aqueous CO2 solutions is accompanied by a pH increase within seconds. In solutions of tailored homo- and AB diblock copolymers this is exploited to induce micelle formation, or, taking advantage of an aqueous upper critical solution temperature transition, nanoparticle disassembly.

The effect of CO2 on the speciation of RbBr in solution at temperatures to 579 degrees C and pressures to 0.26 GPaEvans, Katy; Gordon, R.; Mavrogenes, J.; Tailby, N. (2009)Carbon dioxide- and salt-bearing solutions are common in granulite, ore-forming and magmatic environments. The presence of CO2 affects mineral solubilities, fluid miscibility, and viscosity and wetting properties, and ...
