Ordered Hydrophobic Organosilicates Templated by Block Copolymers

Hydrophobic organosilicates with controlled morphologies at the nanometer length scale have many potential applications in microelectronics and photonics. Here we report the use of block copolymers of poly(butadiene-b-ethylene oxide) (PB-b-PEO) as templates to create 10-20-nm periodic hexagonal arrays of cylinders in hydrophobic organosilicates. The… CONTINUE READING
