Janus Droplets for Delicate Biomolecules
Researchers report on a new approach to generate Janus droplets.
Combining the ion-recognition ability of crown ether units and the thermo-induced volume change behavior of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) polymers, different kinds of ion-responsive hydrogels are developed.
Spontaneous Formation of Bicolored Janus Particles
Shin-Hyun Kim and his coworkers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have developed a simple method to create bicolored Janus particles via phase separation of polymers in emulsion drops.
The Search for the Holy Grail
Macromolecules with specific sequential arrangements of the monomer units have several amazing features, similar to DNA and RNA. As a result, polymer chemists have concentrated on the synthesis of sequence-controlled polymers, regarded as the “Holy Grail” of polymer...
