A new nanophase-separated structure with parallel double periodicity has been identified for an undecablock terpolymer in bulk. The polymer includes two long poly(2-vinypyridine) (P) chains on each end, with five short polyisoprene (I) and four short polystyrene (S) chains at the center. This polymer exhibits a hierarchical lamellar structure with two(More)
Ti-6Al-4V alloy is widely prevalent as a material for orthopaedic implants because of its good corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. However, the discrepancy in Young's modulus between metal prosthesis and human cortical bone sometimes induces clinical problems, thigh pain and bone atrophy due to stress shielding. We designed a Ti-Nb-Sn alloy with a(More)
Highly extensible supramolecular elastomers are prepared from ABA triblock-type copolymers bearing glassy end blocks and a long soft middle block with multiple hydrogen bonds. The copolymer used is polystyrene-b-[poly(butyl acrylate)-co-polyacrylamide]-b-polystyrene (S-Ba-S), which is synthesized via reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT)(More)
Control of nanostructure formation by a diblock-type supramacromolecule via biocomplementary hydrogen bonding has been achieved. Two different homopolymers, poly(4-trimethylsilylstyrene) and poly(styrene-d8), that are end-decorated with complementary oligonucleotides, i.e., thymidine phosphates and deoxyadenosine phosphates, were prepared by using the(More)
We report facile preparation of nanoporous thin films by rinsing out a metal salt from nanophase-separated hybrid films composed of a block copolymer and a water-soluble metal salt. Nanophase-separated hybrids were prepared by mixing polystyrene-b-poly(4-vinylpyridine) (PS-P4VP) and iron(III) chloride in a solvent of pyridine, followed by solvent-casting(More)
One key to success for high quality systems developments is to verify not only functional requirements but also the security requirements at the early stage of developments. However, it is difficult for general developers who have only less security knowledge to define verifiable requirements specification without leakages and errors. To reduce these some(More)
Back Cover: Highly extensible supramolecular elastomers with large stress generation ability can be prepared from large ABA triblock copolymers bearing hydrogen-bonded B soft block. The large stress is induced by extension of both network strands and hydrogen bonds on the strands while stress concentration at glassy domains is avoided by hydrogen bond(More)
Novel and efficient synthesis of polymers terminated with nucleotides via the phosphoramidite method has been developed. A hydroxyl-terminated polymer was converted into a polymer capped with a nucleotide in three steps, where the conversion of the reactions was very high, almost 100%. By repetition of this synthetic method, a block copolymer composed of a(More)
