- Synthesis of Cross-Linked Polymeric Micelle pH Nanosensors: An Investigation of Design Flexibility
E. K. Pramod Kumar, Rasmus I. Jølck and Thomas L. Andresen

Shell stabilized polymeric core–shell–corona micelle-based ratiometric pH nanosensors are synthesized using click chemistry via two different design strategies, mixed micellization and postmicelle modifications. Mixed micellization reduces the requirement of dimensional synthetic modification of the micelles and hence provides more precise knowledge of the overall composition of the nanosensors. Both strategies provide nanosensors having a similar pH sensitivity range.

Back Cover: Dual sulfide–disulfide crosslinked s–ssPxN networks are synthesized by a combination of photo-induced thiol-ene radical addition and oxidation. These networks show rapid self-healing at room temperature within 30 s to 30 min, with no need for extra heling agents. The self-healable s-ssPxN networks retain their integrity when damaged by external force and exhibit self-healing elasticity with reversible viscoelastic properties. Further details can be found in the article by S. Y. An, S. M. Noh, J. H. Nam, J. K. Oh* on page 1255.
