Responsive block copolymer thin films are of interest for many applications, e.g. as fast sensors or switchable membranes. In the present work, we investigate a pH and temperature responsive pentablock quaterpolymer in thin films during solvent vapor annealing (SVA). The end blocks are temperature-responsive and hydrophobic while the midblock is pH-responsive and hydrophilic. Structural information was obtained by employing in situ grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering (GISAXS) and by model fitting the obtained 2D patterns. We find that, varying the pH value of the solution for spin-coating as well as the nature of the solvent used for SVA gives the opportunity to tune the structures in a wide range.
