Self-organization of amphiphilic polymers

Abstract

Even a cursory analysis of the chemical structure of the large majority of synthetic and natural polymers shows that their monomer units have a dualistic character, that is, they possess a pronounced amphiphilicity. In many cases, this feature has a significant impact on polymer self-assembly. In this mini-review, we discuss some examples illustrating nonconventional forms of self-organization which were recently predicted by computer simulation for simple models of amphiphilic polymers.
