We show that a simple Ginzburg–Landau type theory can predict a tremendous rich “zoo” of diblock copolymer morphologies in cylindrical nanopores. Using the cell dynamics simulation we study in detail lamellar-, cylinder-, and eventually sphere-forming diblock copolymers melts in cylindrical nanopores. A very fast simulation method is proposed to be used as a research precursor for more elaborate computational techniques.
