[Back Cover] Stimuli-Responsive, Shape-Transforming Nanostructured Particles

Title: Stimuli-Responsive, Shape-Transforming Nanostructured Particles

Journal: Advanced Materials, 2017, Vol.29, 1700608


Dynamic, temperature-driven transformation of the shape and morphology of polymer particles is demonstrated using polystyrene-b-poly(4-vinylpyridine) block copolymers (BCPs) and temperature-responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) surfactants. The temperature-directed positioning of PNIPAM, depending on its solubility, determines both the shape and morphology of the BCP particles, suggesting great promise of these particles for use in sensing, smart coatings, and drug delivery applications.
