Microfluidically mediated atom-transfer radical polymerization.

Summary of "Microfluidically mediated atom-transfer radical polymerization."

Surfaces with a controlled gradient of polymer brushes were fabricated via microfluidically mediated atom-transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). This methodology used a sealed sandwiched setup with a parallel alignment of the initiator-substrate with the metal substrate. A syringe-pump injected small volumes of Cu(i)/L activator/monomer solution directly into the bottom of the setup while ATRP at the frontal initiator-substrate was simultaneously initiated. The trace amount of injection solution locally confined polymerization to occur only on areas in contact with the solution which resulted in the spontaneous formation of gradient structures. A surface-attached polymer gradient was regulated via either the solution injection rate or monomer/catalysis concentration, thereby yielding a controllable gradient with uniformly grafted polymers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The introduction of functional (usually cloned) GENES into cells. A variety of techniques and naturally occurring processes are used for the gene transfer such as cell hybridization, LIPOSOMES or microcell-mediated gene transfer, ELECTROPORATION, chromosome-mediated gene transfer, TRANSFECTION, and GENETIC TRANSDUCTION. Gene transfer may result in genetically transformed cells and individual organisms.

Composite materials composed of an ion-leachable glass embedded in a polymeric matrix. They differ from GLASS IONOMER CEMENTS in that partially silanized glass particles are used to provide a direct bond to the resin matrix and the matrix is primarily formed by a light-activated, radical polymerization reaction.

Carbon-containing thiophosphonic acid compounds. Included under this heading are compounds that have carbon bound to either SULFUR atom, PHOSPHOROUS atom, or the OXYGEN atom of the SPO2 core structure.
