The self-assembly of block copolymers is one of the most versatile bottom-up methods for the production of nanostructures. Due to their large number of possible morphologies, ABC triblock terpolymers are of particular interest for this purpose. Moreover, their microphase behavior in in microparticles through the so-called "evaporation-induced confinement assembly"-process (EICA) has been little explored so far. Therefore, the aim of this DFG-funded project is to obtain a better understanding of these systems by combining experimental and theoretical work. The theoretical part of the cooperation project is carried out by the Nikoubashman group.
