Functional Block Copolymers: Nanostructured Materials with Emerging Applications



Recent advances in polymer synthesis have significantly enhanced the ability to rationally design block copolymers with tailored functionality. The self-assembly of these macromolecules in the solid state or in solution allows the formation of nanostructured materials with a variety of properties and potential functions. This Review illustrates recent progress in the field of block copolymer materials by highlighting selected emerging applications.
