Compartmentalized Nanoparticles in Aqueous Solution through Hierarchical Self-Assembly of Triblock G

Read the full article here: Polym. Chem., 2018,9, 4132-4142 Amphiphilic block copolymers can elegantly assemble in water to form well-defined nano-objects and through smart design of the polymers it is possible to efficiently prepare functional materials for biomedical applications such as drug carriers. Linear triblock terpolymers add an additional level of complexity to the process. The assembly can proceed in a step-wise manner, collapsing one block at a time and producing materials with segregated domains in the nanometer scale. Here we present the self-assembly of a pH-responsive and sugar-functionalized linear triblock terpolymer PGlcEA-b-PBuA-b-P4VP in aqueous solution. Initially the

Facile Photochemical Modification of Silk Protein–Based Biomaterials

Read the full articles here: Macromol. Biosci. 2018, 1800216 Silk protein–based materials show promise for application as biomaterials for tissue engineering. The simple and rapid photochemical modification of silk protein–based materials composed of either Bombyx mori silkworm silk or engineered spider silk proteins (eADF4(C16)) is reported. Radicals formed on the silk‐based materials initiate the polymerization of monomers (acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, or allylamine) which functionalize the surface of the silk materials with poly(acrylic acid) (PAA), poly(methacrylic acid) (PMAA), or poly(allylamine) (PAAm). To demonstrate potential applications of this type of modification, the polymer
