Exploiting Polymer Nanostructures
The way polymer molecules organize on the nano scale in a solid has a major impact on the macroscopic properties of the material. It determines whether the solid is crystalline, semicrystalline, or amorphous, and it also influences the mechanical, optical, electronic, and other physical properties of the material.
"Controlling properties at the nano level and translating them into the macro level enables one to realize applications of these nanostructured materials," according to Alan R. Hopkins, . . .
