We report a novel library of filomicelles in water comprising either polystyrene or various polymethacrylate cores prepared via temperature-induced morphological transformation (TIMT). The nanoworms demonstrate reproducibly uniform morphology while exhibiting a broad range of glass transition temperatures, high stability in buffer, and the ability to form smart reversible thermoresponsive gels.
