Abstract
Solution self-assembly of the regioregular polythiophene-based block copolymer poly(3-hexylthiophene)-b-poly(dimethylsiloxane) yields cylindrical micelles with a crystalline P3HT core. Monodisperse nanocylinders of controlled length have been prepared via crystallization-driven self-assembly using seed micelles as initiators.
