  • Publication number: 20220127389
    Abstract: Provided are methods for the purification of polymer solutions. In particular, the method enables the separation of impurities from an oxazoline polymer solution by raising the temperature of the polymer solution above its lower critical solution temperature (LCST), wherein a water rich phase and a polymer rich phase separation occurs. The phases are then separated with the polymer rich phase containing a lower amount of impurities than before separation.
