Abstract

Over the past decade much of the research on hydrophobically associating polymers have focused on synthesis and rheological property characterization. In comparison, relatively fewer studies have addressed microstructural details. Aqueous solutions of hydrophobically associating polymers have the potential to form unique microheterogeneous systems. Exploring microstructural features on these soluble polymer complexes and differentiating them from well-characterized common microheterogeneous systems like micelles, microemulsions, and vesicles is important and can add value to the efforts in synthesis and rheological property characterization. The spectroscopic probe approach has been used extensively to study a variety of microheterogeneous systems with varying degrees of success. In this chapter the use of emission and absorption probes to study hydrophobically associating polymers in aqueous media is described.
