[Epub ahead of print]This study revealed, for the first time, that dilute solutions made of a representative series of commercial ethylcellulose (EC; molecular weights 77~305 kDa, provided by the manufacturer) and four distinct organic solvents (α-terpineol, 2,2,4-trimethyl-1,3-pentanediol monoisobutyrate (TPIB), tetrahydrofuran (THF), and benzene) can be used to foster stabilized, nearly monodisperse, nanoscale (pure) polymer colloids with no isolated chains present.
