Phase separated structures in tethered dPS–PMMA copolymer films revealed using X-ray scattering with a novel contrast enhancement agent

Article English OPEN
O'Driscoll, Benjamin M. D.; Newby, Gemma E.; Hamley, Ian W;

Tethered deuterated polystyrene-block-polymethyl methacrylate films have been examined by X-ray\ud scattering both in their native state and following treatment with ruthenium tetroxide. The use of the\ud stain, while increasing the thickness of the films, does not sign... View more
