Abstract

original image

Stern mit Hirn: Eine neuartige supramolekulare Architektur wurde aus einem sternförmigen achtarmigen Polyethylenglycol mit Adamantyl-Endgruppen und einem sternförmigen Poly(N-isopropylacrylamid) mit β-Cyclodextrin-Kern durch Einschlusskomplexierung erhalten. Die Stern-Stern-Supramoleküle bilden wiederum temperaturabhängig ein 3D-Gerüst, sodass ein thermoresponsives „intelligentes“ Hydrogel resultiert.
