Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Block copolymers, their microphase separation as well as their resulting nanoscopic structures have been studied extensively over the past three decades both experimentally and theoretically. Despite considerable efforts and promising results, so far industrially relevant technologies based on block copolymer nanostructures have not yet been developed or at least did not make it to the final product.
This special issue is intended to give the reader an overview over recent cutting edge research and new developments in the field of block copolymer nanotechnology. Here, we would like to place emphasis on work dealing with ways to control and guide the self-assembly of block copolymer systems, the introduction of functionality, block copolymer-based templates, block copolymer hybrid systems, and novel morphologies arising from these hybrid materials. Finally, this issue should also give examples how block copolymer nanostructures can help to meet future requirements in fields like e.g. electronics, data storage as well as energy storage and conversion.
