The Effect of Environment on the Morphology of Styrene-Butadiene Block Copolymers

  • E. B. Bradford


The characterization and morphology of block copolymers have been the subject of many investigations in the last few years. Many block copolymer solutions are colored and films cast from them possess ordered structures. In a previous publication (l) ordered structures from clear and colored styrene-butadiene block copolymer films were discussed. The purpose of this investigation was to show, by electron microscopy, the alteration in copolymer structure which results from various treatments, and thus, aid in the elucidation of molecular behavior.
