    Abstract : Molecular imprinting is a technique by which polymeric materials selective for a given target molecule can be created through a casting procedure. Functionalised monomers are added to a solution of molecular templates. READ MORE

  3. 3. New Strategies for Preparing Polymers with Hierarchical Architectures

    Author : Natacha Ndizeye; Ian A. Nicholls; Alessandra Maria Bossi; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Liquid crystalline media; molecularly imprinted polymers; non-ionic deep eutectic solvents; quartz crystal microbalance; Organic Chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis was to explore novel approaches for controlling morphologies and molecular recognition behaviour of polymers and to use these strategies in conjunction with the molecular imprinting technique in order to either enhance polymer performance in quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) sensor applications, or as an alternative to conventional solvents of polymerization. In Papers I and II, the use of liquid crystalline media in the synthesis of molecularly imprinted polymers was demonstrated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Strategies for developing peptide and protein selective plastic antibodies

    Author : Rashmi Mahajan; Ian A. Nicholls; Subramanian Suriyanarayanan; Börje Sellergren; Alessandra Maria Bossi; Linnéuniversitetet; []
