Abstract

In this communication we study the influence of strong 3D confinement on the self-assembly of diblock copolymers containing a polyferrocenylsilane metallopolymer segment. Both silica colloidal crystals and silica inverse colloidal crystals, having nanometer-scale interconnected pore networks, are used as molds to direct the self-assembly. Unusual morphologies, such as concentric shells and branched lamellae, result from the interaction of the polymer with the high surface area topologically periodic templates.
