- N-bromo-hydantoin grafted polystyrene beads: Synthesis and nano-micro beads characteristics for achieving controlled release of active oxidative bromine and extended microbial inactivation efficiency

Chemically or kinetically release modified N-halamine hydantoins conjugated polystyrenes beads were studied. Beside chemical modifications, bead's nano-micro characteristics were found critical for oxidative halogen release control: rate stabilization and modulation, extension and also influences antimicrobial activity. Distinct controlled releasing profiles were found and extended strong antimicrobial activity for hundreds of liters. These parameters are important to explore, since the rate of halogen release influences antimicrobial activity and subsequently the material usage for different applications.

A small band gap conjugated polymer with ternary acceptors of diketopyrrolopyrrole, benzothiadiazole, and naphthalenediimde is presented. Nanowires of this polymer were fabricated to show ambipolar field-effect transistors with hole and electron mobilities of 1.61 and 0.98 cm2 V−1 s−1.
- Highly efficient water-soluble visible light photoinitiators

Environmental friendly photocurable formulations are widely used for water-borne coatings or hydrogel production for medicinal use. Currently there is a lack of suitable and commercially available photoinitiators with satisfying properties for such water-based formulations. In our article we describe efficient compounds based on acylphosphine oxide salts for visible light curing. These salts provide excellent solubility in water, cytocompatibility, good storage stability, and high reactivity.
- Supramolecular polymer gels from polystyrene bearing cyclic amidine Group and acrylic acid/n-butyl acrylate copolymers

Supramolecular polymer gels were prepared from polystyrene bearing cyclic amidine pendant group and copolymers of acrylic acid and n-butyl acrylate. The gel formation was attributed to the three-dimensional network of the amidinium-carboxylate salt bridge. Dynamic shear measurements showed that the gel had G' higher than G" over a temperature range of −22 °C to 32 °C, where the G' value reached almost 1 MPa.
