Fantastic work by Hendrik - SCNPs meet peptide chemistry @PolymChem

Block copolymers with light responsive main chain units - hot off the press from Linh's, Thiago's and @HatisMutlu's bench in @PolymChem https://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlelanding/2022/py/d2py00994c Excellent work, building on our earlier studies with Jean-Marie Lehn and @GrebGroup @QUTmaterials @QUT @KITKarlsruhe

We have developed a simple sunlight driven synthetic path to polymer microspheres - just out in @NatureComms https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-022-32429-3 Excellent teamwork by Dr. Laura Delafresnaye, Dr. @FlorianFeist1 and Dr. Jordan Hooker. Find out more below @QUT @QUTmaterials @KITKarlsruhe
