  • Abstract Complementary multiple hydrogen bonding interactions in molecular design have recently received significant attention because of the tendency to form new supramolecular structures or the self-assembly of hierarchical nanostructures from block copolymers can lead to lamellae, cylinders, and other hierarchical structures. In this study, we mimicked DNA-like interactions, to synthesize DNA heteronucleobase (T)-containing diblock copolymers (PS-b-PVBT) copolymers, which blend low-molecular-weight compound 9-hexadecyladenine (A-C16) or block copolymer/nanoparticle (BCP/NP) composites OBA-POSS to form self-assembly structures. The self-assembly of block copolymers to form related bioinspired core/shell T-containing polymeric micelle structures stabilized through strong complementary multiple hydrogen bonds. Synthesis of two new star-like supramolecular POSS-based materials are able to self-assemble forming a physically crosslinked polymer-like structure through hydrogen bonding interaction between the arms.
