Organic-inorganic hybrid polymers (PS-POSS), which were polystyrene (PS) attached with polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) at one end, were prepared by nitroxide-mediated radical polymerization. Blend films composed of PS-POSS and PS were spin-coated from their toluene solution onto cleaned silicon wafer. Atomic force microscopic observation suggested that PS-POSS was well dispersed in PS matrix. Furthermore, the incorporation of PS-POSS into PS thin film served to improve the stability of the thin film against dewetting.
