Synthetic Enantiopure Carbohydrate Polymers that are Highly Soluble in Water and Noncytotoxic.
The first synthesis of poly-amido-saccharides (PASs) from a galactose(gal)-derived β-lactam sugar monomer is reported. The polymers are prepared using a controlled anionic ring-opening polymerizationExpand
Carboxylated Glucuronic Poly-amido-saccharides as Protein Stabilizing Agents
The synthesis of novel carbohydrate-based polymers allows the structure to be tailored at the monomer level for a specific property and expands the range of available structures beyond those found inExpand
Synthesis and Characterization of Poly(glyceric Acid Carbonate): A Degradable Analogue of Poly(acrylic Acid).
The synthesis and characterization of a degradable version of poly(acrylic acid), poly(glyceric acid carbonate), are reported. Specifically, atactic and isotactic poly(benzyl glycidate carbonate)sExpand
Intracerebral Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare in a child with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
Combined Molecular Dynamics Simulations and Experimental Studies of the Structure and Dynamics of Poly-Amido-Saccharides.
Poly-amido-saccharides (PAS) are carbohydrate-based, enantiopure synthetic polymers in which sugar repeat units are joined by amide linkages. This unique and relatively rigid pyranose backboneExpand
Macromolecular photoinitiators enhance the hydrophilicity and lubricity of natural rubber
A mild and facile strategy to coat natural rubber (NR) with a hydrophilic coating is described that uses light and photoinitiator copolymers. Five high molecular weight photoinitiator copolymers,Expand
Friction-lowering capabilities and human subject preferences for a hydrophilic surface coating on latex substrates: implications for increasing condom usage
Personal lubricants can increase user satisfaction with male condoms by reducing friction and yielding a slippery sensation. However, lubricants pose disadvantages of dilution in physiologic fluidsExpand
Poly-amido-saccharides (PASs): Characterization of the Secondary Structure and Protein Interactions
Natural polysaccharides are of significant interest in chemistry and biochemical research because of their structural diversity and essential roles in physiological processes. Many proteins are knownExpand
