Abstract

An overview is given of the three-dimensional microdomain structure of the star ABC composed of PS, PI, and PDMS with the arm-length (Mn) ratio of almost 1:1:1 (PS: 19.5K; PI: 20.7K; PDMS: 19.0K). In this case, strong repulsive interactions among the three different blocks yield a three-phase microdomain structure at room temperature.
