Summary

The effects of fluctuations and conformational asymmetry play a dominant role on the order-to-disorder and order-to-order phase boundaries as discussed in Chapter 15. This chapter provides the four known phase diagrams discussed in terms of the fluctuation effects and the effect of conformational asymmetry. The phase behavior of ABC triblock copolymers and the effect of block sequencing is also discussed.
