  Title Collapse in two good solvents, swelling in two poor solvents: defying the laws of polymer solubility? Type Journal Article
  Year 2018 Publication Journal Of Physics-Condensed Matter Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 30 Issue 2 Pages  
  Keywords coil-globule transition; mixed solvents; smart responsive polymers  
  Abstract In this work we discuss two mirror but distinct phenomena of polymer paradoxical properties in mixed solvents: co-non-solvency and co-solvency. When a polymer collapses in a mixture of two miscible good solvents the phenomenon is known as co-non-solvency, while co-solvency is a phenomenon that is associated with the swelling of a polymer in poor solvent mixtures. A typical example of co-non-solvency is provided by poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) in aqueous alcohol, while poly(methyl methacrylate) in aqueous alcohol shows co-solvency. We discuss these two phenomena to compare their microscopic origins and show that both can be understood within generic universal concepts. A broad range of polymers is therefore expected to exhibit these phenomena where specific chemical details play a lesser role than the appropriate combination of interactions between the trio of molecular components.
