Dynamic Surface Tension Behaviour in a Photoresponsive Surfactant System
We report on the surface properties of a photoresponsive surfactant that incorporates the light-sensitive azobenzene group into its tail. Cis-trans photo-isomerization of this group alters the ability of the surfactant to ...
Correlating Gene Transfection Efficiency and the Physical Properties of Various Cationic Poly(methacrylate) Systems
Transfection efficiencies of several polymeric gene carriers were compared and correlated quantitatively to the amounts of cellular accumulation of plasmid DNA and to the expression of mRNA by quantitative real time PCR. ...
Photo- and Thermoinduced Sol-Gel Transitions in Blends of Azobenzene Copolymers and Pluronic Surfactants
Novel self-assembling copolymers of 4-Methacryloyloxyazobenzene and NN-dimethylacrylamide (MOAB-DMA) exhibiting a pronounced photoviscosity effects in water are described. An optimum polymer architecture corresponding to ...
