Toroidal structures from brush amphiphiles

Author affiliations


The self-assembly of macromolecular brushes of varying amphiphilic character from homogeneous solution under rapid assembly conditions results in unique morphologies, distinct from equilibrium structures. Kinetic features of the assembly process enabled the formation of toroid structures, the sizes of which were readily tuned according to solvent quality.
