New article on gradient polymer nanoparticles - now available in Polymer Chemistry
December 5, 2016
A big congratulations to post-doctoral research associate Dr Florent Jasinski (UNSW) who has had recent work from his project published in the RSC journal Polymer Chemistry. The article, entitled "Synthesis and characterisation of gradient polymeric nanoparticles" is the first unequivocal demonstration of the design of polymer nanoparticles via emulsion polymerization where the radial distribution of polymer in a given particle changes from phase A to phase B in a gradient fashion, as opposed to abrupt changes in surface morphology such as core-shell particles.
These materials have unique physical properties and are of high interest to the coatings industry.
