A novel strategy was demonstrated to synthesize poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL)-based miktoarm star (μ-star) copolymers, by combining ring-opening polymerization (ROP), styrenics-assisted atom transfer radical coupling (SA ATRC), and atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). An A2B4-type of well-defined PCL2-μ-PSt4 (PSt: polystyrene) and PCL2-μ-PtBA4 (PtBA: poly(tert-butyl acrylate) μ-star copolymers were successfully obtained. By using atomic force microscopy (AFM), the unique μ-star copolymers showed an interesting spherical structure with diameters of ca. 250 and 45 nm, respectively. View the paper
