ABSTRACT:  Self-association behavior of random copolymers of sodium 2-(acrylamido)-2-methylpropane sulfonate (AMPS) and N-dodecylmethacrylamide (DodMAm) with low DOdMAm contents (fDod) of 2.5−10 mol% was investigated mainly by QELS. In the case of the copolymer with fDod=10 mol%, the relaxation time distribution is unimodal independent of the polymer concentration. On the other hand, in the case of the copolymers with fDod=2.5−7.5 mol%, the relaxation time distributions became bimodal at polymer concentrations >5 g/L, indicating interpolymer associations occurring at higher concentrations of the polymers. From QELS results, apparent values of hydrodynamic radii (Rh) for unimers and the interpolymer associates were estimated to be ca. 6−7 and ca. 120 nm, respectively. The interpolymer associates were found to be disrupted by the addition of a nonionic surfactant, n-dodecyl hexaethylene glycol monoether.
