Abstract
In order to increase the range of coronal chemistries available for crystallization-driven self-assembly protocols a series of highly asymmetric diblock copolymers comprising a crystallizable polyferrocenyldimethylsilane (PFS) block and a polymethacrylate coblock (poly(tert-butylmethacrylate) (PtBMA), poly(n-butylmethacrylate) (PnBMA), and poly(N,N-dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate) (PDMAEMA), block ratios PFS core : corona = 1 : 14–1 : 21) were synthesized by sequential living anionic polymerization. Self-assembly of these block copolymers in acetone yielded cylindrical micelles with a crystalline PFS core (confirmed by wide-angle X-ray scattering) and a polymetha...
