A series of near-monodisperse novel diblock copolymers based on tertiary amine methacrylates has been synthesised using group transfer polymerisation chemistry; subtle differences in basicity between the two blocks lead to interesting aqueous solution behaviour, including pH-induced micellisation and very high surface activity.
