Stimuli-Responsive Materials: Protein/Polymer-Based Dual-Responsive Gold Nanoparticles with pH-Dependent Thermal Sensitivity (Adv. Funct. Mater. 7/2012)
As reported by Munish Chanana, Luis M. Liz-Marzán, and co-workers on page 1436, dual-responsive gold nanoparticles exhibit fully reversible thermoresponsive and pH-sensitive optical and physicochemical properties. This occurs due to the pH-sensitive protein coating grafted with thermosensitive polymer brushes.
