Lithographic resists

The resolution of photolithographic process, primarily limited by the radiation wavelength λ, can be increased via double patterning. Read the article Lithographic Resists to find out more about double patterning and its limitations, polymer-based coating, and photochemistry.

Isodesmic vs. cooperative polymerization

Supramolecular polymerizations can follow an isodesmic mechanism (top: monomer binding constant K does not vary with the degree of polymerization) or cooperative (bottom: the binding constant in the nucleation and elongation stages do not vary with the degree of polymerization, however their values are different, Kn≠Ke). To find out how to distinguish between these two mechanisms of polymerization read the article on Supramolecular Polymers.

Micelles and vesicles

Block-copolymers form micellar (left) and vesicular (right) morphologies by tuning the ratio of their hydrophilic (red) to hydrophobic (gray) parts. See the articles Polymeric Micelles and Polymer Vesicles for an overview of the techniques to template polymer-based nanoscale morphologies and their applications.
