The link that lasts: A new frontier in supramolecular block copolymer design
Lasting link: A supramolecular linkage between two parts of an amphiphilic block copolymer was developed that is sufficiently strong to allow phase-separation-driven nanopatterning as well as chromatographic characterization. The link can also be severed in response to a solvent trigger signal. This powerful approach will open new avenues for the production of self-healing materials, triggered-release systems, and reversible surface designs.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
