The impact of sodium halides on the switching behavior of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) brushes is investigated, providing unprecedented data on thermodynamic driving forces. These results represent an essential reference on the way to unpuzzle the molecular origin of the Hofmeister effect and have immediate implications for advanced applications of such thermoresponsive brushes as miniaturized sensors and actuators, e.g., in drug delivery and microfluidics.
