    Amphoteric glycogen hydrogels are prepared by thermostable α-glucan phosphorylase-catalyzed successive α-glucuronylation, α-glucosaminylation, and polymerization of glycogen using different substrates, which show the pH-responsive behavior.

  2. Multidetector-ThF3 as a Novel Tool for the Investigation of Solution Properties of Amphiphilic Block Copolymers

    In this study, multidetector thermal FFF is utilized to study amphiphilic block copolymers in different selective and nonselective solvents. Amphiphilic block copolymers have the ability to form micelles or aggregates dependent on solvent and conditions. The effect of different polymer-solvent systems on the diffusion and thermal diffusion coefficients, and the resultant separation, is studied.

  3. Organocatalytic Polymerization of Furfuryl Methacrylate and Post-Diels–Alder Click Reaction to Cross-Linked Materials

    Furfuryl methacrylate is effectively polymerized by the P4-phosphazene superbase and its cross-linked materials are prepared using the Diels–Alder “click” reaction with C60 and a bismaleimide.

    Front Cover: A method for free radical polymerization induced by visible light has been developed. The polymerization process is controlled in situ by the constant generation of low concentrations of initiator radicals. The light-initiated process is easily and sharply controlled, with no need for preheating or cooling of the reaction mixtures. Polymers with molar mass as high as 5.64 × 105 g mol−1 are achieved. Further details can be found in the article Y.-Y. Chen, Z.-N. Hu, D.-W. Xu, Y.-F. Yu, X.-L Tang* and H. Guo* on page 1055.
