Stimuli-responsive block copolymers can form various morphologies depending on, for example, pH, temperature, or proper choice of solvent. By changing the dispersing solvent, the structure of nano-objects from triblock copolymer micelles can be manipulated from solid to hollow spheres. The transition is attributed to the migration of core-block chains across the crosslinked shells of the micelles and makes them attractive for applications such as encapsulation for drug and gene delivery.
