The industrial implementation of biofuel production from lignocellulosic biomass faces a number of economic obstacles. One of these is the cost of enzymes, typically used for cellulose hydrolysis. Nature provides some hints towards the efficiency of this process, exampled in natural enzyme complexes –cellulosomes, produced by some microorganisms. Therefore, many research groups target synthetic routes to mimic such cellulosomes with synthetic structures when many questions remain to be…

Elucidating the Mechanism of Silica Nanoparticle PEGylation Processes Using Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopies
Fluorescence correlation and cross-correlation spectroscopy on ultrasmall (<10 nm) fluorescent silica nanoparticles (SNPs) in water as a test bed shows unexpected fast reaction kinetics in successful PEGylation observed even at nanomolar concentrations.
Morphological Changes in Block Copolymer Melts Due to a Variation of Intramolecular Branching. Dissipative Particles Dynamics Study
We performed dissipative particles dynamics (DPD) simulations for the melts of various star and comb diblock copolymers with equal molecular weight (L = 41 beads) but with various types of internal
Structural and Colloidal-Chemical Characteristics of Nanosized Drug Delivery Systems Based on Pegylated Comb-Like Carriers
Novel comb-like polymeric and oligomeric drug carriers combining backbone – copolymers of 5-tertbutylperoxy-5-methyl-1-hexene-3-yne (VEP) and glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) – and side PEG chains of
Thermobifida fusca family-6 cellulases as potential designer cellulosome components
Both chimaeric enzymes showed somewhat decreased but measurable levels of activity on carboxymethyl cellulose, consistent with the known endo- and exo-glucanase character of the parent enzymes.
Dynamic simulation of diblock copolymer microphase separation
The dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) simulation method has been used to study mesophase formation of linear (AmBn) diblock copolymer melts. The polymers are represented by relatively short strings
Enzymatic Noncovalent Synthesis.
This review intends to provide a summary of the works of ENS within the past decade and emphasize ENS for functions, with a perspective on the promises of E NS for developing molecular assemblies/processes for functions.
Synthesis and Characterization of Comb-Like Copolymer Dispersant with Methoxy Poly (Ethylene Oxide) Side Chains
A series of comb-like copolymer with variation in poly(ethylene oxide) side chain length and anionic group content was synthesized successfully for detailed interfacial studies by free radical
Self-assembly of brush-like poly[poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate] synthesized via aqueous atom transfer radical polymerization.
Self-assembly of brush-like well-defined poly[poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate] homopolymers is investigated in aqueous solution by employing dynamic/static light scattering (DLS/SLS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), whereas 475 and 1100 is molar mass of the respective PEGMA macromonomer.
From supramolecular to conventional polymers: polyethylene glycol.
An estimation of the polymerization degree (n) where PEG changes its nature from a supramolecular polymer to a conventional polymer found that that virtual transformation takes place when n reaches the value of about 9.
