We report new properties and applications of polymer and hybrid materials based on the one-dimensional topology of cylindrical polymer brushes (CPBs). We review three examples of core-shell CPBs to illustrate the applications resulting from stretched backbone, dense and stretched inner layer (core) of side chains, and huge number of chain ends of the outer layer (shell).
