Three isomeric, linear, equimolar, amphiphilic ABC triblock copolymers comprising methyl methacrylate (MMA, nonionic hydrophobic), 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate, (DMAEMA, ionizable hydrophilic) and hexa(ethylene glycol) methacrylate (HEGMA, nonionic hydrophilic) units (10 units in each block) were synthesized by group transfer polymerization (GTP). These were the three block sequence isomers, ABC, ACB and BAC. The corresponding random terpolymer was also prepared. The molecular weights and compositions of all the polymers were characterized by GPC and 1H NMR. Measurements of the hydrodynamic diameters and cloud points of the copolymers in aqueous solution suggest that the various distributions of monomer units in the four terpolymers (the three triblocks and the random) result in different supramolecular structures with different colloidal stabilities. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
