SCPN Based Thermoplastics

Galant 2017 graphical abstract

Our first experimental paper in our ongoing collaboration with the Diesendruck group on single chain polymer nanoparticles (SCPN) is out in Macromolecules. This manuscript presents the first ever mechanical testing on bulk polymers composed entirely of this novel SCPN architecture for which bulk properties can be tailored by changing the degree of SCPN cross-linking. Or Galant and Suwon Bae worked closely together during Or’s stay in our lab last summer to work out the sample preparation and testing methods that ultimately led to this publication.
