Non-Isocyanate Polyurethane Soft Nanoparticles Obtained by Surfactant-Assisted Interfacial Polymerization
Polyurethanes (PUs) are considered ideal candidates for drug delivery applications due to their easy synthesis, excellent mechanical properties, and biodegradability. Unfortunately, methods for preparing well-defined PU ...
Brownian Dynamics Computational Model of Protein Diffusion in Crowded Media with Dextran Macromolecules as Obstacles
The high concentration of macromolecules (i.e., macromolecular crowding) in cellular environments leads to large quantitative effects on the dynamic and equilibrium biological properties. These effects have been experimentally ...
Enantioselective Ring-Opening Polymerization of rac-Lactide Dictated by Densely Substituted Aminoacids
Organocatalysis is becoming an important tool in polymer science because of its versatility and specificity. To date a limited number of organic catalysts have demonstrated the ability to promote stereocontrolled ...
Temperature responsive PEG-based polyurethanes “ a la carte”
Temperature responsive polymers able to alter their chemical or physical properties have been extensively investigated. Most of these polymers have an alkane polymer backbone with only carbon-carbon bonds. In this sense, ...
