Well-defined and selectively functionalizable linear aliphatic diblock copolyethers are successfully synthesized without any side reactions via sequential step feed of the comonomers. Each block of the diblock copolyether selectively undergoes deprotection and post chemical functionalizations. Moreover, the diblock copolyethers undergo phase-separation and molecular ordering, and form various nanostructures, depending on the compositions and selective post chemical modifications.
