Abstract : Three years of research on the synthesis, structure and properties of semicrystalline block copolymers are summarized. Novel aspects of this relatively unexplored category of microphase-separated materials include: strongly path-dependent morphologies, unusual gas transport characteristics, compositionally enriched surfaces and favorable mechanical properties. Two industrial and one academic collaboration are mentioned. (MM)
