Abstract

In this report, we explore the capability of macromolecules to interdigitate into densely grafted molecular brush copolymers. We demonstrate that by using the tendency for stereocomplexation between poly(l-lactide) and poly(d-lactide) as a driving force complementary linear polymers and brush copolymers can form a stereocomplex. However, stereocomplex formation between complementary brush copolymers is restricted and only partially observed when the side chains are of a critical molecular weight.
