Preparation of ion group functionalized diblock copolymers and examination of their thermogelling properties

, , , , , , , ,
To investigate thermogelling behavior, in this study, methoxy polyethylene glycol-b-[poly(ε-caprolactone)-ran-poly(6-chloride-ε-caprolactone) (PCL-ran-PfCL)] (PCL-Cl) diblock copolymers were designed such that the PfCL content in the PCL segment was varied. The PCL-Cl diblock copolymers were derivatized by introducing [...]

Uptake Behavior of Glycoconjugated and Micellar-Encapsulated Quantum Dots on HeLa Cervical Cancer Cells

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
Glyconanomaterials are of great interest for bio-imaging to understand biological processes, for instance metabolism, cell-cell or virus-cell interactions, gluconeogenesis, and cancer. Herein, we present a strategy for the biofunctionalization of fluorescent quantum dots (QDs) from [...]

Encapsulation of nanoparticles with multifunctional, cross-linkable diblock copolymers for biomedicine

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
We would like to present a micellular encapsulation method for nanoparticles (quantum dots, iron oxides, gold) which is based on a ligand exchange procedure of native ligands with a prepolymer poly(isoprene)-diethylentriamine (PI-N3) and subsequent ligand [...]
