ABA-type triblock copolymers and AB-type star-shaped diblock copolymers with poly(2-adamantyl vinyl ether) [poly(2-AdVE)] hard outer segments and poly(n-butyl vinyl ether) [poly(NBVE)] soft inner segments were synthesized by sequential living cationic copolymerization. Although they are totally composed of poly(vinyl ether) backbones and hydrocarbon side chains, the two polymer segments were segregated into a microphase-separated structure to form thermoplastic elastomers with good mechanical and thermal properties and wide service temperatures.
