Block copolymers based on n-butyl mediacrylate (BMA) and 2-(acetoacetoxy)ethyl methacrylate (AEMA), a commercially available monomer bearing a β-dicarbonyl ligand, are used for the solubilization of metal ions (Fe3+, Co2+, Pd2+) in organic media. Stable colloidal dispersions of inverse hybrid micelles can be obtained in cyclohexane. Even though not soluble in the continuous phase, the metal ions are evenly distributed among aggregates. Due to their narrow size distribution, the hybrid micelles tend to form ordered domains when being deposited on a solid substrate. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
