Although most ABA triblock copolymers are molecularly symmetric (i.e., the terminal blocks possess the same mass), molecularly asymmetric A1BA2 triblock copolymers are of greater fundamental interest because they can be used to explore the transition from diblock to triblock copolymer in systematic fashion. Here, a lattice Monte Carlo method is used to simulate molten ABA triblock copolymers with a short terminal block to explore the effect of asymmetry on the copolymer order–disorder transition.
