Novel stimulus responsive coating for polystyrene particles.

Brazil / Бразилия

Stimulus-responsive polymers can either swell or shrink in response to small external changes in the environmental conditions. These polymers have been utilized in biotechnology and biomedical applications such as in drug delivery. The aim of this project is to characterize novel stimulus responsive particle coatings of polystyrene which, in this case, is going to be based upon the coatings with poly (N,N-dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate) (PDMAEMA) and poly (N-methylmethacrylate).
