We have studied the simultaneous synthesis and morphogenesis of polymer materials with hierarchical structures from nanoscopic to macroscopic scales. The morphologies of the original materials can be replicated to the polymer materials. In general, it is not easy to achieve the simultaneous synthesis and morphogenesis of polymer material even using host materials. In the present work, four biominerals and three biomimetic mesocrystal structures are used as the host materials or templates and polypyrrole, poly(3-hexylthiopehene), and silica were used as the precursors for the simultaneous syntheses and morphogenesis of polymer materials. The host materials with the hierarchical structure possess the nanospace for the incorporation of the monomers. After the incorporation of the monomers, the polymerization reaction proceeds in the nanospace with addition of the initiator agents. Then, the dissolution of the host materials leads to the formation and morphogenesis of the polymer materials. The scheme of the replication can be classified into the three types based on the structures of the host materials (types I-III). The type I template facilitates the hierarchical replication of the whole host material, type II mediates the hierarchical surface replication, and type III induces the formation of the two-dimensional nanosheets. Based on these results, the approach for the coupled synthesis and morphogenesis can be applied to a variety of combinations of the templates and polymer materials. Morphology replication: Simultaneous synthesis and morphogenesis of polymer materials is achieved by the use of host materials from nanoscopic to macroscopic scales. The morphologies of the original host materials can be replicated to the polymer materials.
