Abstract

Materialien mit Köpfchen: Metastabile Nanopartikel aus einzelnen Polymerketten wurden durch stimuliresponsive reversible intramolekulare Vernetzung der Polymerketten in Wasser erhalten: Funktionalisieren des Poly(N-hydroxyethylacrylamid)-Polymers mit Viologen und Naphthalin, zwei Gastmolekülen für Cucurbit[8]uril (CB[8]), und Zugabe des Makrocyclus lieferten die Nanopartikel (siehe Bild).
