A single multiblock copolymer chain in poor solvent undergoes microphase separation within its own globule, driven by the same kind of forces operating in the bulk system. However, the necessity of packing a large AB interface into a small volume leads to novel convoluted geometries. Long block lengths form a double droplet. Very short block lengths exhibit bulk behavior, forming a lamellar globule. With intermediate block lengths, the AB interface buckles to form a hand shake or spiral...[Show more]
