We also investigate  the creation and evolution of self-organized structures in polymer mixtures and their microphase and macrophase separations. These systems include blends of block copolymers differing in chemical block composition, their architecture, systems with a crystalizable or stereotactic block and multiblock copolymers. The mixtures are investigated both in bulk and in solution, including solution  in a mixture of solvents, in dilute or concentrated conditions . The aim is mastering the process of self-organization in polymers and copolymers leading to nanostructured materials for nanotechnology and biomedical applications.
Our group operates several advanced experimental techniques: static and dynamic light-scattering, time-resolved light-scattering, static birefringence, measurement of zeta-potential and electrophoretic mobility, electron paramagnetic resonance, small-angle and wide-angle X-ray scattering, isothermal titration calorimetry.
