Abstract

This thesis describes the preparation and characterization of addressable responsive polymer structures and their versatile applications. Stimuli responsive polymer chains including temperature responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide), PNIPAM, pH responsive poly(methacrylic acid), PMAA and redox responsive poly(ferrocenylsilane) PFS can be assembled into various functional polymer architectures such as polymer grafts on surfaces by “grafting to” and “grafting from” approaches and polymer networks in bulk including macroscopic hydrogels and microgels/nanogels systems.
