Abstract

This outlook paper focuses on micelles formed by ABC triblock copolymers (triblock terpolymers) and related systems resulting from mixtures of diblock copolymers. Micelles with different internal structure such as micelles with a heterogeneous core and a homogeneous corona or micelles with a homogeneous core and a mixed corona are presented. More complex nanoobjects such as vesicles and Janus particles are also reviewed. Finally, potential applications of these objects are discussed.
