A zipper-assembly of micelles into 2D/3D coatings is reported. Block copolymer micelles that incorporate a poly(n-octadecyl methacrylate) block are zipped and unzipped on demand onto a PMMA surface. The mechanism implies an interdigitation of molecular brushes enabling 15 nm micelles to be assembled into monolayers or multilayers.
