Abstract In our study we explore the phenomena of phase segregation at polymer interface to develop responsive materials. This approach is based on a reach phase diagram for the polymer mixture confined in a thin polymer film when lateral mobility of the polymer chains is suppressed by chemical grafting, while a conformational change and mobility at the scale of molecular dimension make the phases to be very sensitive to external stimuli and interactions. The polymer films demonstrate very pronounced response to change of solvent quality, temperature, and surface composition of the confining wall.<br /><br />Assembly and Applications of Soft Interfaces<br />The 226th ACS National Meeting, New York, NY, September 7-11, 2003
