Sphere-packing, icosahedral symmetry.

Water-compatible nanoscale network. Micrograph is showing a structure of ~ 3 μm x 3 μm.

Small angle X-ray scattering pattern obtained from a sphere-forming poly(isoprene-b-DL-lactide) diblock copolymer.

Transmission electron micrograph showing a lamellar morphology of poly(DL-lactide-b-1,4-isoprene-b-DL-lactide) triblock polymer. Domain spacing is ~ 100nm.
