Comb polymers composed of a polymethacrylate backbone and poly(2-ethyl-2-oxazoline) side chains exist as macromolecular bottlebrushes in aqueous solution, revealing a transition from ellipsoidal to a cylindrical shape around a backbone degree of polymerization of 30. The polymers exhibit lower critical solution temperature behavior in aqueous solution. The application of various techniques (phase diagram, turbidimetry, dynamic light scattering, small-angle neutron scattering, and transmission electron microscopy) provides access to information of the influence of the polymeric architecture upon its thermoresponsive properties.
