Charge-driven complexation of polyelectrolytes in water is a fundamental phase separation phenomenon that is prevalent in nature and across the high-value technology landscape. Here we describe an experimentally convenient and versatile approach to construct patterned PECs, comprising well-defined charged macromolecules with both ionic styrene and neutral maleimide units alternating in the chain sequence.
