Abstract

Interface manipulation to pursue unusual nanostructures was performed using a strategically designed triblock terpolymer with a short middle segment, poly(styrene-b-methyl methacrylate-b-2,2,2-trifluoroethyl methacrylate). A short middle segment of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) that does not form any distinct domains was found to play an important role in manipulating the interface between the polystyrene (PS) and poly(2,2,2-trifluoroethyl methacrylate) (PTFEMA) domains and forming unconventional partially continuous oblate cylinders with an oblique lattice, as confirmed by small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and dual-axis transmission electron microtomography (TEMT).
