Copolymers based on butyl methacrylate and urethane methacrylate containing side cyclodextrin fragments are prepared. With the use of IR spectroscopy, SAXS, WAXS, and DSC, it has been shown that microphase separation in the said copolymers is hampered by cyclodextrin moieties and that the chemical nature and structure of blocks occurring in side chains play the key role in the formation of micro-and macro-phase structures in the polymer systems under consideration.
