A novel method making use of block copolymer self-assembly in nematic liquid crystals (LCs) is described for preparing macroscopically oriented nanofibrils of π-conjugated semiconducting polymers. Upon cooling, a diblock copolymer composed of regioregular poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and a liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) in a block-selective LC solvent can self-assemble into oriented nanofibrils exhibiting highly anisotropic absorption and polarized photoluminescence emission.
