Self-assembled solution micelles prepared from polystyrene-b-poly(4-vinylpyridine) (PS-b-P4VP) and polystyrene-b-poly(2-vinylpyridine) (PS-b-P2VP), have been employed as templates to synthesize copper nanocatalysts which are regarded as an excellent catalyst system for 1D nanomaterial synthesis. We have demonstrated that uniform-sized nanoparticles with… CONTINUE READING
