The self-assembly of the amphiphilic graft copolymer AA-C8PhEO10Ac in water was investigated by fluorescence technique using 8-anilino-1-naphthalene sulfonate(ANS) as a probe and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), the effects of inorganic salt , copolymer concentration and pH on the micellar size and structures of AA-C8PhEO10Ac were discussed. It was found that the micelle morphologies and sizes were related with the micellar preparation methods. The sizes of micelles increased with the addition of NaCl and decreased at high pH values.
