We report the preparation of a series of fiber-like micelles of narrow length distribution with an oligo(p-phenylene vinylene) (OPV)-core and a poly(N-isopropyl acrylamide) (PNIPAM) corona via two different crystallization-driven selfassembly
(CDSA) strategies. The average length Ln of these micelles a can be varied up to 870 nm by varying the temperature in self-seeding experiments. In addition, seeded growth was employed not only to prepare uniform micelles of controlled length, but also to form fiber-like A-B-A triblock co-micelles with an OPV-core.
