Abstract

The ferroelectric P(VDF-TrFE) polymer is of great interest for multiple applications including memory devices. However the effect of nanoconfinement on the curie transition is still being investigated. In this report we synthesized PtBMA-b-P(VDF-r-TrFE)-b-PtBMA block copolymers by first synthesizing a P(VDF-TrFE) macroinitiator using radical polymerization, and subsequently synthesizing the block copolymers using atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). The resulting block copolymers were studied using 1H-NMR, differential scanning calorimetry and polarized optical microscopy in order to study the effect of block copolymer confinement on the curie transition. A kinetics study was done to investigate the effectiveness of ATRP for creating these block copolymers.
