The formation of unusual multilayered parallel lamellae-in-lamellae in symmetric supramolecular double-comb diblock copolymers is presented. While keeping the concentration of surfactant fixed, the number of internal layers was found to increase with molecular weight M up to 34 for the largest block copolymer. The number of internal structures n was established to scale as M0.67 and therefore enables easy design of such structures with great precision.
