Nanostructured, functionalized surface patterns are important for applications that require, for example, selective absorption of proteins. A novel alkyne-functionalized diblock copolymer has been successfully synthesized using atom transfer radical polymerization. Microphase separation was observed both in the bulk and in the thin films. The orientation of microdomains in thin films can be conveniently tailored through solvent annealing, which is promising for fabrication of nanoscaled surface patterns using alkyne/azide click chemistry.
