Drug releasing behavior of hybrid micelles containing polypeptide triblock copolymer.
A new type of hybrid polymeric micelles for drug delivery applications that consist of PLGA and PEG mixed corona chains and their tunable release rate without sacrificing colloidal stability is reported. Expand
Super-helices self-assembled from a binary system of amphiphilic polypeptide block copolymers and polypeptide homopolymers.
We report here a discovery that amphiphilic polypeptide block copolymers and polypeptide homopolymers are able to aggregate together into super-helical structures of rods and rings, in whichExpand
Theoretical foundation of Zisman's empirical equation for wetting of liquids on solid surfaces
Theories of wetting of liquids on solid surfaces under the condition that van der Waals force is dominant are briefly reviewed. We show theoretically that Zisman's empirical equation for wetting ofExpand
Surface passivation of luminescent colloidal quantum dots with poly(dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate) through a ligand exchange process.
Polydimethylaminoethyl methacrylate (PDMAEMA) was used as a multidentate ligand to modify the surface of CdSe/ZnS core-shell colloidal quantum dots in toluene with trioctylphosphine oxide (TOPO) asExpand
Redox-induced synthesis and encapsulation of metal nanoparticles in shell-cross-linked organometallic nanotubes.
A new approach to encapsulate silver nanoparticles inside block copolymer nanotubes is reported and involves an in situ redox reaction between a polyferrocenylsilane (PFS) inner wall and silver ions.Expand
Cylindrical micelles from the aqueous self-assembly of an amphiphilic poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(ferrocenylsilane) (PEO-b-PFS) block copolymer with a metallo-supramolecular linker at the block
Crystallization of the PFS in these micelles was observed by differential scanning calorimetry, and is thought to be the key behind the formation of rod-like structures. Expand
Shell cross-linked cylinders of polyisoprene-b-ferrocenyldimethylsilane: formation of magnetic ceramic replicas and microfluidic channel alignment and patterning.
Stable organometallic cylindrical nanostructures have been prepared by shell cross-linking of PI320-b-PFS53 wormlike micelles in hexane through metal-catalyzed hydrosilylation at 23 degrees C. TheExpand
Structure-defined c60/polymer colloids supramolecular nanocomposites in water.
A new supramolecular method for the synthesis of well-defined pristine C 60/polymer colloid nanocomposites in water with many potential applications such as biomedicals and photovoltaics is reported. Expand
