Nanocomposites composed of monodisperse silica nanoparticles (SiNPs) modified with an elastic comb-shaped block copolymer brush were produced for the first time. Comb-shaped polymer brushes consisting of glassy poly(methyl methacrylate) branches and a rubbery poly(butyl acrylate) backbone were grafted from 100 nm diameter SiNPs by surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization. The comb-shaped polymer brush-grafted SiNPs produced self-standing films with a face-centered cubic ordered lattice structure via solvent-casting. The composite films showed rubber elasticity because of the interparticle rubbery polymer brush boundary phase. The ordered lattice exhibited significant alignment and distortion in response to the macroscopic film strain, and then reproduced the initial ordered lattice after unloading. ©
