The sequence distribution of the hydrophobic monomers in the copolymers was controlled by varying the number of hydrophobes
per micelles, [N.sub.H], and it was assumed that the hydrophobe
content corresponds to the initial feed composition.
The concentration of AT hydrophobes
in a coating is low and would not promote a significant viscosity increase without interactions with other components in the coating.
With the [C.sub.18][H.sub.37](EO)[.sub.100] large hydrophobe
, an additional viscosity synergy is possible, as observed with larger hydrophobic HEUR thickeners.
(3-5) HASE thickeners are based on a polyelectrolyte backbone, usually methacrylic acid (MAA) and ethylacrylate (EA) copolymer, with pendant hydrophobes
that are attached to the backbone with polyethylene oxide chains).
(14) The reciprocal of [tau] can then be approximated by the hydrophobe
dissociation rate, [[beta].sub.0], characterized by a bonding potential, [E.sub.m],

content was limited to 1 mol% and the incorporation level, determined by [sup.1]H-NMR spectroscopy, was close to the alimentation monomer feed.

The very fact they got me through the basic scuba-diving certificate is something of an achievement for such a hydrophobe
The alkyl functionality also acts as a hydrophobe
to reduce water absorption.
The reactions were maintained at their respective temperatures until the hydrophobe
solids reached approximately 23 percent, which corresponded to a water tolerance (WT) of approximately 200 percent.
In "Ithaca," Stephen declines Bloom's invitation to wash his hands, insisting he is a "hydrophobe
" (17.237), and the overly meticulous voice of the "Ithaca" narrator echoes Stephen's distaste for water, declaring an "incompatibility of aquacity with the erratic originality of genius" (17.247).
