Title: Self-assembly of highly asymmetric, poly(ionic liquid)-rich diblock copolymers and the effects of simple structural modification on phase behaviour

Abstract

A series of ATRP-synthesized poly(IL) diblock copolymers exhibit morphological phase behavior with shifted phase boundaries and alkyl substituent dependent segregation.
