Striped networks and other hierarchical structures in A mB mC n (2m+n)-miktoarm star terpolymer melts

Kirkensgaard, Jacob


Using dissipative particle dynamics simulations we give numerical evidence of the formation of "striped" (or AB alternating) diamond and gyroid network structures and other hierarchical morphologies in AmBmCn (2m+n)-miktoarm star terpolymers where the main variable is the ratio x=n/m with m,n being the number of equal length polymer arms of A and B and C, respectively. The formed networks are purely a result of the star topology, as clearly shown by direct comparison with parallel ABC miktoarm...[Show more]
