AbstractStacking triblock copolymers as represented in Fig 1 would be extended more or less indefinitely in both directions to produce very long-range linear nanostructures. The concepts of template fabrication have become increasingly important, isotropic, anisotropic, or hierarchical structures can be obtained, depending on the type of template self-organization mechanism employed. The use of template structures to organise sol gel precursors opens up the huge potential for monolithic materials.
