Functional nanomaterials from single chain nanoparticles

Conference Dates

May 20-25, 2018


The concept is simple: to build functional nanomaterials in the protein size regime (i.e. 2-5 nanometers in diameter), one must be able to manipulate matter on a similar length scale. Canonical synthetic organic chemistry operates on a length scale an order of magnitude too small (a few angstroms rather than and few nanometers). Traditional polymer nanoparticle fabrication techniques (e.g. solution assembly of block copolymers or emulsion polymerization techniques) operate on a length scale that is an order of magnitude too large (a few tens of nanometers).
