An ingenious formulation of RAFT dispersion polymerization based on photosensitive monomers of 2-nitrobenzyl methacrylate (NBMA) and 7-(2-methacryloyloxy-ethoxy)-4-methyl-coumarin (CMA) is reported herein. Various morphologies, such as spherical micelle, nanoworm, lamella, and vesicle, are fabricated at up to 20% solids content. Photoinduced cleavage of the NBMA moieties and dimerization of the co ...
