Single Chain Asymmetric Block Copolymers in Poor Solvents. Candidates for Patchy Colloids
Single chain block copolymers in poor solvents with asymmetric A and B species block lengths form an interesting and potentially useful set of conformations not yet fully investigated by the literature. Self-consistent field theory simulations performed in this work predict that the chains collapse to form a sphere of the species with longer blocks surrounded by various surface domains of the species with shorter blocks. A simple free energy scaling model describes this formation and provides...[Show more]
