Abstract

On the starting block: Polystyrene-block-poly(4-vinylpyridine) and a [60]fullerene carboxylic acid combine to form spherical supramolecular aggregates (see picture), the size and morphology of which can be controlled by changing the block composition ratio in the copolymer. The method is generally applicable to the construction of organic nanoparticles.
