RAFT emulsion polymerisation for nanoparticles design

Lead Research Organisation: University of Warwick
Department Name: Chemistry

Abstract

The project focuses on the design of nanoparticles of various functionalities by RAFT emulsion. A range of RAFT agents showing amphiphilic properties will be used to mediate hydrophobic monomer polymerisation in aqueous media and generate polymeric particles via the polymer induced self assembly (PISA) process. The resulting nanoparticule,s will be further functionalised with biorelevant molecules to be studied as drug delivery vectors.
