Novel ABA-type dumbbell-like water-soluble copolymers [D230(EI)4, D400(EI)4, and D400(EI)8] were synthesized by introducing ethylenimine (EI) groups into both sides of polyoxypropylenediamines via a simple in situ ethylamination of polyoxypropylenediamine with 2-chloroethylamine hydrochloride. The structures of the resultant polymers were identified by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and 1H NMR. The percentages of primary, secondary, and tertiary amine present were determined by the potentiometric titration method after treatments with the appropriate chemicals of salicylaldehyde and acetic anhydride. The surface tension and solubilizing behavior of pyrene in the presence of these polymers in aqueous medium were also investigated, and the efficiency to reduce the surface tension and solubilizing behavior of pyrene depends on the attachments of El to polymer backbone. The chelating properties of these polymers were examined quantitatively by ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy in the presence of Cu2- ions in aqueous solution, and continuous variation analysis revealed that the most stable complex is formed at the normality ratio of [N]/[Cu2+] = 3.0. UV-vis spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy were used to evaluate the dumbbell-like water-soluble copolymer, D400(EI)8, as a stabilizer for preparing colloidal noble metal nanoparticles (Au and Pt) in aqueous solution.
