Summary

The effect of chain architecture on the structure factor and intrinsic compatibility of block copolymers is discussed in Chapter 14. The cases of ABA triblock copolymers, ABn miktoarms, AnBn stars, (AB)n stars, tapered copolymers and multiblock copolymers are discussed in detail with emphasis on the disordered structure factor and phase state. Some examples from scattering and rheology are provided.
