Nanoparticles direct assembly of copolymers

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Argonne National Laboratory, University of South Carolina, the University of Pittsburgh, all in the US, and Bayreuth University, Germany, have found that adding nanoparticles to diblock copolymers can redirect their self-assembly. The scientists believe the technique could have applications in chemical sensing, separation, catalysis, high-density data storage and photonic materials.
