  • I thank the students and post-doctoral fellows in my group for performing the work reviewed here.


The preparation of nanofibers—fibers with nanometer diameters—is briefly reviewed. Particular attention is paid to the synthesis based on locking-in the mesophasic structures formed by diblock copolymers. Examples of the resulting nanofibers with a core-shell structure (prepared for transmission electron microscopy by a freeze-drying method) are shown in the Figure.
