about this item

This book covers self-assembly techniques in the synthesis of biomolecules for the development of new compounds and better functionality of existing ones.  Topics include: principles of macromolecular self-assembly; synthetic approaches for building blocks (block co- and ter-polymers); hierarchically assembled bulk polymer materials; thermodynamics of self-assembly; theory and experimental studies of assembly of block copolymers in solutions; characterization; stimuli responsive self assembly (including stimuli such as light, pH, and CO2; multilevel co-assembly; rheology; gradient copolymers; polymerization-induced assembly; intra-molecular assembly; electrostatically-driven assembly (micellar interpolyelectrolyte complexes); self assembly at interfaces; layer-by-layer assembly; self-assembly of bio-hybrid polymers; and biomedical applications.
