Microphase Separation, Formation of Other Microstructures in Polymer Systems

Microphase separation in the melts and solutions of block-copolymers: phase diagrams of polymers with complex architectures, non-classical morphologies, superstrong segregation limit. Secondary structures in irregular multiblock-copolymers (the effect of block polydispersity). Irregularity of primary structure, additional structural levels. New polymer systems with microphase separation transition: poor solvent polyelectrolyte solutions, mixtures of weakly charged polyelectrolytes, ionomers.
