Abstract: The microphase diagrams of special A2B copolymer melts were presented by using the self-consistent field theory for star copolymer systems. Unlike the phase diagram of diblock copolymer, only three classical structures, namely spherical phase, cylindrical phase and lamellar phase were discovered in the diagram of the A2B system. The change in chain architectures allowed sufficient shifts of phase boundaries and widened the range of fB for which lamellar phase occurred, to some degree. Simply, an asymmetric architecture for copolymer allowed control of the morphology independent of the volume fraction.
