Block copolymers are useful in many applications where a number of different polymers are connected together to yield a material with hybrid properties. These materials are used for example as melt processable plastics, detergents in solution, compatibilizers and adhesives. This volume aims to bring together significant recent advances on this topic, such as developments in computer modelling, thin film morphology characterization, nanoscience and technology applications. In addition, it covers new polymerization methods that have been introduced leading to the emergence of novel products and applications.

The book is aimed at graduate students and researchers in polymer science as well as industrial scientists involved in the polymer, coatings and microelectronics industries.
