This report describes the synthesis of amphiphilic copolymers (ABC-1 and ABC-2) composed of a hydrophilic poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) block, a central poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) block, and a random copolymer of heptadecafluorodecyl methacrylate (HDFMA) and methyl methacrylate (MMA) forming the hydrophobic block, which are used to form nanodroplets for ultrasound-mediated cell ablation. Specifically, the effect of molecular weight of PEG and P(HDFMA-co-MMA) blocks on polymer's ability to self… CONTINUE READING
