Advances in Click Chemistry for Single-Chain Nanoparticle Construction
Single-chain polymeric nanoparticles are artificial folded soft nano-objects of ultra-small size which have recently gained prominence in nanoscience and nanotechnology due to their exceptional and sometimes unique properties. ...
Efficient Synthesis of Single-Chain Polymer Nanoparticles via Amide Formation
(Hindawi Publishing, 2015)
Single-chain technology (SCT) allows the transformation of individual polymer chains to folded/collapsed unimolecular soft nanoparticles. In this work we contribute to the enlargement of the SCT toolbox by demonstrating ...
Metal-Free Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Nanoparticles by Enamine "Click" Chemistry at Room Temperature
"Click" chemistry has become an efficient avenue to unimolecular polymeric nanoparticles through the self-crosslinking of individual polymer chains containing appropriate functional groups. Herein we report the synthesis ...
Advances in Fluorescent Single-Chain Nanoparticles
Fluorophore molecules can be monitored by fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy, which are highly useful and widely used techniques in cell biology, biochemistry, and medicine (e.g., biomarker analysis, immunoassays, ...
Advances in Single-Chain Nanoparticles for Catalysis Applications
Enzymes are the most efficient catalysts known for working in an aqueous environment near room temperature. The folding of individual polymer chains to functional single-chain nanoparticles (SCNPs) offers many opportunities ...
Glass-Transition Dynamics of Mixtures of Linear Poly(Vinyl Methyl Ether) with Single-Chain Polymer Nanoparticles: Evidence of a New Type of Nanocomposite Materials
Single-chain polymer nanoparticles (SCNPs) obtained through chain collapse by intramolecular cross-linking are attracting increasing interest as components of all-polymer nanocomposites, among other applications. We present ...
