Heat-responsive polymers that do not breakdown in water may lead to new antifouling coatings and enhanced oil recovery
Thanks to the positively and negatively charged units in their monomers, zwitterionic polymers have a high affinity for water—a property known as hydrophilicity. This property helps prevent fouling, namely ...
Seeing is bead-lieving: Scientists create model 'bead-spring' chains with tunable properties
Rice University researchers are using magnetic beads and DNA "springs" to create chains of varying flexibility that can be used as microscale models for polymer macromolecules.
