Light-responsive vesicles based on azobenzene containing imidazolium surfactants and sodium oleate

In this work, three light responsive imidazolium surfactants containing azobenzene moiety (CmAZOCnIMB, m = 0, 2, 4 and m + n = 6), namely, 1-[2-(4-phenylazo-phenoxy)-ethyl]-7-methylimidazolium bromide (C0AZOC6IMB) …

Improving in vitro biocompatibility of gold nanorods with thiol-terminated triblock copolymer

Gold nanorods (AuNRs) are usually synthesized using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) surfactant as a structure-directing agent. CTAB is reported to form a tightly bound cationic bilayer on AuNR surface with the cationic trimethylammonium head …

Molecular brushes with poly-2-ethyl-2-oxazoline side chains and aromatic polyester backbone manifesting double stimuli responsiveness

Behavior of grafted copolymers composed of aromatic polyester (PAPE) backbone and poly-2-ethyl-2-oxazoline (PEOZ) side chains differing in grafting density in aqueous solutions was studied when heated at various concentrations and pH using static …

Superhydrophobic polymer composite coating on glass via spin coating technique

In this work, a superhydrophobic coating on glass surface has been prepared by using polymethylmethacrylate, SiO2 nanoparticles, and hexadecyltrimethoxysilane via spin coating technique. Coating was characterized by using contact angle measurement …

Effect of chain length and counter-ion on interaction study of mixed micellar system of isoquinoline-based surface active ionic liquid and cationic surfactants in aqueous medium

In the present study, we have investigated the effect of nature of surfactant, chain length and counter-ion on the mixed micellization behaviour ofvarious cationic surfactants, tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide (TTAB), dodecyltrimethylammonium …

About this journal

Colloid and Polymer Science - a leading international journal of longstanding tradition - is devoted to colloid and polymer science and its interdisciplinary interactions. As such, it responds to a demand which has lost none of its actuality as revealed in the trends of contemporary materials science. To enable an effective and fast dissemination of scientific manuscripts, four categories of contributions are presented:

- Invited review articles
- Perspectives
- Original contributions
- Short communications

The latter will be published with high priority, at least within two weeks after acceptance of the manuscript. (The usual time between acceptance and publishing OnlineFirst is typically three weeks.) With this immediacy, Colloid and Polymer Science serves as a reliable partner for an effective distribution of scientific results.
