Keywords:
micelle kinetics, time resolved small angle scattering, self-assembly

Abstract:
An in-situ study of the self-assembly process of block copolymer micelles is presented using time resolved small angle X-ray scattering capable of resolving the process in the milli-second range. Different models for nucleation and growth will be discussed and compared to the experimental data.
