Long-Chain Branched Polypropylenes by Electron Beam Irradiation and Their Rheological Properties
The aim of this paper is to investigate how the molecular structure of linear polypropylenes can be modified by electron beam irradiation. For this purpose a linear precursor was irradiated with
Hyperbranched and highly branched polymer architectures--synthetic strategies and major characterization aspects.
The challenging synthesis of the dendrimers attracted especially scientists with a strong organic chemistry background and led to beautifully designed macromolecules, which allowed a deeper insight into the effect of branching and functionality.
On the topology of highly branched polyethylenes prepared by amine−imine nickel and palladium complexes: the effect of ortho‐aryl substituents
Series of nickel and palladium complexes bearing amine-imine ligands in various ortho-aryl and backbone positions were prepared and investigated in ethene polymerization. Ethene polymerization
Supracolloidal multivalent interactions and wrapping of dendronized glycopolymers on native cellulose nanocrystals.
This work reports on exploring multivalent interactions to CNC surface and shows that dendronized polymers (DenPols) with maltose-based sugar groups on the periphery of lysine dendrons and poly(ethylene-alt-maleimide) polymer backbone interact with CNCs.
Overcoming concealment effects of targeting moieties in the PEG corona: controlled permeable polymersomes decorated with folate-antennae for selective targeting of tumor cells.
The excellent biocompatibility, controlled permeability, targeted internalization, as well as selective cytotoxicity of such polymersomes set up the basis for properly smart carrier for targeted drug delivery.

Plant pressure sensitive adhesives: similar chemical properties in distantly related plant lineages
The pressure sensitive adhesive properties of the plant adhesives are chemically proved and seem to appear independently in distantly related plant lineages, habitats, life forms, as well as plant organs, and serve different functions such as prey capture in Roridula and fruit dispersal in Peperomia.
One step 3D printing of surface functionalized composite scaffolds for tissue engineering applications.
These results provide novel insights into the behavior of three-component melts from PLGA, CaCO3 and amphiphilic polymers during precision extruding deposition and show for the first time that self-assembly processes can be used to tailor scaffolds surface properties under such processing conditions.
