Abstract

A polyhedral silsesquioxane (POSS)-methacrylate and poly(n-butyl acrylate) triblock copolymer (poly(MA-POSS)-b-BA-b-(MA-POSS)) prepared by atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) were synthesized and characterized. The molecular weight and composition of the triblock copolymer was determined from size exclusion chromatography and H NMR spectroscopy. The study aims to develop an understanding of the thermoplastic elastomeric properties as influenced by hard-block interactions and nanometer-scale organization in the materials.
