Summary

Chapter 10 is devoted to the study of the detailed conformation of individual block copolymer molecules in dilute solutions in nonselective solvents and its relation to block copolymer architecture. The individual block copolymers conformations and their properties in solution and bulk are strongly related. Representative studies are discussed and the main conclusions drawn so far are highlighted.
