literature search concerning block-copolymer micelles in liquid solutions
Could you please do a quick literature search for me concerning block-copolymer micelles in liquid solutions.
We all know about the micellar transitions usually referred to as the critical micelle concentration and the critical micelle temperature. Here are my questions:
* Is CMC an instantaneous, “black-white” transition, from a 100% random solution to a 100% micellar solution (where the micelle concentration is 100%) upon increasing copolymer concentration, and vice versa, upon dilution? If not, if in fact the micellar solution contains both unimers and micelles, what do we know about it?
* same question about CMT?
* what do we know about micelle concentration below and above CMC as we increase/decrease the copolymer concentration?
* same for CMT?
* What are the solvent effects on these phenomena?
* What do we know about exchange of single polymer change among micelles?
