Access to intrinsically glucoside-based microspheres with boron affinity
Vogt, Andrew P., Tischer, Thomas, Geckle, Udo, Greiner, Alexandra M., Trouillet, Vanessa, Kaupp, Michael, Barner, Leonie, Hofe, Thorsten, & Barner-Kowollik, Christopher (2013) Access to intrinsically glucoside-based microspheres with boron affinity. Macromolecular Rapid Communications, 34(11), pp. 916-921.
Intrinsically glucoside-based microspheres are prepared in olive oil via a water in oil inverse suspension polymerization. The microspheres are characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), evidencing the intrinsic glucose character of the spheres. A novel boronic acid fluorescent molecule was subsequently conjugated to the microspheres in an aqueous environment, exhibiting the spatial and uniform distribution of glucoside as well as the affinity of the microspheres to bind with boron, evidenced via fluorescence spectroscopy measurements.
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.
