Abstract : The rapid development of polymerization techniques and polymer reaction chemistries has generated significant progress on the synthesis of functional polymers with sophisticated nanostructures, and subsequently led to the exploration of their novel properties that can be utilized for new applications in biomaterials, nanomedicines, catalysis, environmental remediation and sustainable energy technologies. Although conventional polymer structures, such as star polymers and graft copolymers, have been commonly synthesized, future development in this area urgently requires not only judicious synthetic strategies to next-generation nanomaterials, but also intensive collaboration and knowledge exchange among synthetic chemists, polymer physicists and materials scientists.
