Abstract: Polymers are ideal building blocks to fabricate organic nanostructures. To bridge the gap between natural and ''fabricated'' devices, more control over polymers at the nanometer level is required. This review will highlight a number of recent advances in polymer synthesis, self-organisation of block copolymers, and soft-lithographic techniques, that all provide new routes towards nanostructured polymers.

 

Keywords: soft lithography; self-assembly; block copolymers; nanopolymers; nanotechnology; nanostructured polymers.
