We report on the synthesis of well-defined thermoresponsive water-soluble diblock copolymer and homopolymers functionalized with controlled numbers of C60 moieties at predetermined positions via the combination of atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) and click chemistry. Azide-containing polymer precursors including monoazide-terminated and α,α-diazide-terminated poly(N-isopropylacrylamide), N3- PNIPAM and (N3)2-PNIPAM, as well as poly(ethylene glycol)-b-PNIPAM with one azide moiety at…

Poly(dopamine acrylamide)-co-poly(propargyl acrylamide)-modified titanium surfaces for ‘click’ functionalization
TLDR
The functionalized Ti surfaces from the CuAAC reactions were characterized by fluorescence microscopy, non-specific protein adsorption ( for the PEG-grafted Ti surface), specific protein adsorbption (for the mannose- and biotin-functionalized Ti surface) and host–guest interaction with antibiotics.
