Colloidal and bulk block polymer nanostructured materials fabricated via solvent- or polymerization-induced structural transitions have been used in a host of applications ranging from biomedical to energy technologies. In both methods, the resulting nanostructure forms due to a change in the initial environment by either changing the solvent quality or the compatibility between polymers during polymerization.
