Title (EN) METHOD FOR CONTROL OF TEMPERATURE-SENSITIVITY OF POLYMERS IN SOLUTION
(FR) PROCEDE DE REGULATION DE LA SENSIBILITE THERMIQUE DE POLYMERES EN SOLUTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Temperature sensitive, water soluble polymers are disclosed, together with a method for control the LCST of the polymer. The polymers include hydrophilic components and hydrophobic components joined by linking groups such as ester or amide groups wherein the hydrophilic components includes m ethylene oxide groups, the hydrophobic components consist of aliphatic groups such as n ethylenes and/ or cycloaliphatic groups, and where 1≤ m≤ 30 and 1 ≤ n ≤ 30. Substrates bearing the grafted temperature responsive polymers also are disclosed. Microfluidic devices which include the temperature responsive polymers also are disclosed.
(FR)L'invention concerne des polymères hydrosolubles thermosensibles, ainsi qu'un procédé permettant de réguler la température critique inférieure en solution (LCST) du polymère. Les polymères décrits dans cette invention comprennent des composants hydrophiles et des composants hydrophobes reliés par des groupes de liaison, tels que les groupes ester et amide, les composants hydrophiles contenant m groupes d'oxyde d'éthylène, les composants hydrophobes consistant en des groupes aliphatiques, tels que n éthylènes et/ou n groupes cycloaliphatiques, et 1= m= 30 et 1 = n = 30. Cette invention concerne également des substrats supportant des polymères thermosensibles greffés. Elle concerne également des dispositifs microfluidiques contenant de tels polymères thermosensibles.
