Self-assemblies of magnetic nanoparticles and di-block copolymers: Magnetic micelles and vesicles

Abstract : Magnetic nanocomposites are obtained by the self-assembly in water of polypeptide-based di-block copolymers polybutadiene-b-poly(glutamic acid) combined with hydrophobic gamma-Fe2O3 nanoparticles. These hybrid supramolecular objects are either-(3D) spherical micelles filled with a hydrophobic ferrofluid at a concentration as high as 45 vol% or-hollow vesicles with a (2D) magnetic membrane. In this last case, the organic amphiphile copolymers are able to confine the hydrophobic nanoparticles within the thin layer of polybutadiene blocks. We probe these objects by atomic force microscopy, by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and by light scattering. Furthermore, anisotropic SANS data bring the experimental evidence of the capability to modify the shape of the mineralized membranes in response to a magnetic field intensity as low as 290G.
