Abstract

The phenomena of swelling and shrinkage of lamellar domain of conformationally restricted block copolymers by metal chloride, was studied. The addition of additives such as homopolymer to a block copolymer provided a relatively simple means to control the period. The periodicity of block copolymer mesophase was achieved by introducing the coordination between metal halide and a functional group. The block copolymers were found to show a rich variety of spatially periodic nanostructures due to their ability of molecular self-assembly.
