In recent years, research on cylindrical polymer brushes (or molecular bottlebrushes) has received significant attention. In this paper, we discuss various strategies for their synthesis and the unique properties arising from their regular multibranched structure. Some recent advances in the application of cylindrical polymer brushes are highlighted. Amphiphilic core-shell cylindrical polymer brushes, for example, were successfully used as single molecular templates for inorganic nanoparticle formation.
