E. Johan Foster, Erik B. Berda and E. W. Meijer Tuning the size of supramolecular single-chain polymer nanoparticles Journal of Polymer Science Part A: Polymer Chemistry 49
Both analytical seperation via GPC and careful molecule weight control during synthesis show that it is entirely possible to tune the size of a supramolecular single-chain nanoparticle by tuning the molecular weight of the parent chain. In addition, this report outlines the structural requirements of the pendant supramolecular functional group needed to facilitate the intramolecular folding of a single chain. The difference between individual unimolecular objects and aggregates of single-chain particles as viewed by AFM is also discussed.
