In this review we show how Crystallization-Driven Self-Assembly (CDSA), a method originally employed for the self-assembly of block copolymers in solution, was extended to the synthesis of elongated micellar nanostructures in polymer matrices. By highlighting some of the works published by our group in this area, the conditions to synthesize nanostructured polymers by CDSA are discussed. The knowledge of these conditions will allow developing a new generation of nanomaterials with tailored architecture according to a required application.
