    A novel saccharide–peptide supramolecular conjugate, that is, amylose–poly(d-alanine) inclusion complex is obtained by steroselective inclusion toward polyalanine stereoisomers according to the vine-twining polymerization manner in phosphorylase-catalyzed enzymatic polymerization field.

  2. Thermoreversible Order−Order Transition of a Triblock Copolymer Containing a Mesogen-Jacketed Liquid Crystalline Polymer with a Re-Entrant Phase Behavior

    PBPCS with a re-entrant phase behavior is used to synthesize a new kind of ABC triblock copolymer, PDMS-b-PS-b-PBPCS. At low temperatures, PBPCS is amorphous and the sample forms a core–shell hexagonally packed cylindrical (CSH) morphology. At high temperatures, the nanostructure changes from the CSH structure to three-phase-four-layer (3P4L) lamellae with the formation of the liquid crystalline phase of PBPCS. And the order−order transition is thermoreversible.

  3. Thiol–Maleimide Michael Addition Click Reaction: A New Route to Surface Modification of Porous Polymeric Monolith

    Sabrina Belbekhouche, Mohamed Guerrouache and Benjamin Carbonnier

    Article first published online: 10 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201500427

    New implementation of thiol–maleimide Michael addition click reaction is presented for the surface functionalization of thiol-modified monoliths. Success of the reaction is ascertained based on Raman spectroscopy and surface interaction ability investigations. Functional monoliths with well-controlled surface properties were applied as capillary electrochromatographic separation media and platform for biomacromolecules immobilization.

  5. Design and Performance Evaluation of Hybrid Nanofiltration Membranes Based on Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes and Polyelectrolyte Multilayers for Larger Ion Rejection and Separation

    Improvement in rejection and permeability of commercial silicon carbide membranes is achieved using polyelectrolyte multilayer membranes with a spacer of multiwalled carbon nanotubes in between. Up to 92% rejection for MgSO4 and a 60% rejection difference between MgCl2 and NaCl make these membranes appealing for nanofiltration and monovalent and divalent ion separations.
