Block copolymers comprise an important class of self-assembling macromolecular systems, that exhibit both lyotropic and thermotropic ordering phenomena. The length scales associated with these structures fall in the range 10-100 nm and are amenable to study by small angle scattering (X-ray and neutron) and electron microscopy. The dynamics of these systems may be probed by rheological and light scattering techniques. Recent results from our laboratory will be presented, emphasizing styrene-isoprene copolymers.
