Abstract

Au nanoparticles (NPs) and polymer composite particles with phase-separation structures were prepared based on phase separation structures. Au NPs were successfully synthesized in amphiphilic block-copolymer micelles, and then composite particles were formed by a simple solvent evaporation process from Au NPs and polymer solution. The phase separated structures (Janus and Coreshell) were controlled by changing the combination of polymers having differing hydrophobicity. (Figure Presented)
