A new approach to the synthesis of thermosensitive polymers was realized, it is based on the radical copolymerization of monomers with a significant difference in the hydrophilic-hydrophobic balance of the structure. A wide range of new thermosensitive copolymers was received, which at a certain ratio of hydrophilic and hydrophobic units in macrochain display properties that are typical for thermosensitive polymers. Aqueous solutions of copolymers are characterized by lower critical temperature of dissolution, and polymer meshworks on their base show ability to termo-induced collapse, that’s value can adjust within wide limits by varying the composition of the copolymer. The main regularities of physico-chemical behavior of the derived copolymers were determined.
