• Field-flow fractionation of amphiphilic block copolymers 

      Greyling, Guilaume Hermanus (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2016-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT : Complex polymers have multiple distributions with respect to molecular weight, chemical composition, functionality as well as molecular topology and architecture. Moreover, these distributions affect ...
    • N-vinylpyrrolidone-vinyl acetate block copolymers as drug delivery vehicles 

      Bailly, Nathalie (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The primary aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of the amphiphilic block copolymer poly((vinylpyrrolidone)-b-poly(vinyl acetate)) (PVP-b-PVAc) as a vehicle for hydrophobic anti-cancer ...
    • Novel siloxane block copolymers 

      Staisch, Ingrid (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-12)
      The research presented in this dissertation was concerned with the living radical polymerization (LRP) of an amphiphilic, water-soluble, bi-substituted and biologically compatible acrylamide derivative, namely ...
    • Synthesis and characterisation of amphiphilic block copolymers 

      Morkel, Charl Ernst (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-03)
      This study involves the synthesis and characterisation of PEG-based amphiphilic block copolymers for the hydrophilization of polysulphone ultrafiltration membranes. PEG based macro RAFT agents were synthesized and ...
    • Synthesis and characterization of multiphase copolymers 

      Elhrari, Wael K. S. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Multiphase copolymers generally consist of copolymers where the disparate natures of each of the segments results in complex phase-segregated morphologies in the solid state. The outstanding properties ...
