Combining the self-consistent field theory (SCFT) and the density functional theory (DFT), we investigated the self-assembly behavior of AB diblock copolymer tethered single spherical particle P (ABP molecules). Two cases were studied: one is where the particles are chemically neutral to both A and B blocks, and the other is where the particles are unfavorable to neither of the two blocks. For neutral particles, the ABP molecules self-assemble to typical equilibrium microstructures, such as… CONTINUE READING
