This review summarizes recent advances to date in the area of block copolymer micelles and also tries to highlight some new directions in that field. Generalities about the preparation, characterization, and dynamics of block copolymer micelles are first outlined. Selected examples of micelle formation in aqueous and organic media are shown for block copolymers with various architectures. The different types of micellar morphologies are discussed. New directions in block copolymer micellization are finally presented.
