Nanoparticle-regulated phase behavior of ordered block copolymers
MetadataShow full item record
Although block copolymer motifs have received considerable attention as supramolecular templates for inorganic nanoparticles, experimental observations of a nanostructured diblock copolymer containing inorganic nanoparticles—supported by theoretical trends predicted from a hybrid self-consistent field/density functional theory—confirm that nanoparticle size and selectivity can likewise stabilize the copolymer nanostructure by increasing its order– disorder transition temperature.
