Morphology Study of Polystyrene-Polybutadiene-Polycaprolactone (PS-b-PB-b-PCL), Polybutadiene-Polycaprolactone (PB-b-PCL), and Polystyrene-Polycaprolactone (PS-b-PCL) Semicrystalline Block Copolymers

Abstract

Distinctive behaviors of PCL(polycaprolactone) in block copolymers are significant for various polymer applications such as low temperature adhesives, biocompatibilizer and pigments. Thus, there has been increasing interest in the morphologies of block copolymer systems containing PCL crystalline block. The effects of various composition, architecture and thermal conditions on the morphologies of semicrystalline in PS(polystyrene)-PCL,PB(polybutadient)-PCL, and PS-PB-PCL block copolymers are explored by transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
