Studies from University of Massachusetts Reveal New Findings on Nanoassemblies

February 28, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Researchers detail new data in Nanoassemblies. According to news reporting from Amherst, Massachusetts, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A dual stimuli responsive nanogel-polyelectrolyte complex based on electrostatic coating has been developed."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Massachusetts, "The nanoassembly is designed to elicit two disparate responses. (viz., surface property change and guest encapsulation stability) from two different stimuli (viz., pH and redox variations)."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The components of the nanogel and the polyelectrolyte have been conveniently achieved from a simple homopolymer, poly(pentafluorophenylacrylate)."
