Investigators at Martin-Luther-University Have Reported New Data on Science (Lateral surface engineering of hybrid lipid-BCP vesicles and selective nanoparticle embedding)
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Martin-Luther-University, "We demonstrate the selective incorporation of polymer-functionalized CdSe NPs into the polymer-rich domains in vesicular hybrid membranes using 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC, Tm=41 °C) or 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DOPC, Tm=-20 °C) as the lipid component. Furthermore, we demonstrate a method to detect PIB-PEO based amphiphilic BCPs on liposomal surfaces by a PEO binding antibody (anti-PEO)."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "As a result, hybrid membrane morphologies, which depend on the lipid/BCP composition, are selectively monitored and engineered."
