A novel, facile fabrication method of polymer tubes is presented: using methylene bisacrylamide (MBA) self-assembled fibers as both the template and monomer source, the MBA polymer microtubes are obtained via reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization. The dissolved MBA molecules polymerize into layers surrounding the fibers and the layers serve as the frameworks of the polymer tubes. Thereafter, the fibers continuously dissolve and polymerize onto the frameworks until the fibers all transform into polymer tubes.
