A new paper showcasing our collaborative work with Dr Shepherd in the University of Sheffield has just been published in ChemComm. This work, writing by Joey Shepherd, Tom Swift, Chien-Yi Chang, James R Boyne, Stephen Rimmer and William Martin showcases how HB-PNIPAM-HL can act as a quorum sensing antagonist and modulate how bacterial organisms communicate with one another.
We are delighted to announce a new publication released today is our latest work in the area of bacterial diagnostics. We have attached Nile Red as a pendant dye to our highly branched PNIPAM polymers to create a diagnostic infection sensor, and our latest results are published in Acta Biomateriala.
Today online a new advanced access article is online at Biomaterials Science, launched following our recent collaboration with the team at the University of Sheffield. This paper shows the efficacy of our recent highly branched polymer materials to disturb or prevent the formation of bacterial biofilms.
Our colleagues in the Geoghegan group at the University of Sheffield have just published a detailed analysis of our highly branched polymer systems using neutron scattering, and neutron spin echo, techniques. This very interesting paper, written with the collaboration of Professor Rimmer, has just been published in Soft Matter.
ACS Biomacromolecules has just announced the upcoming publication of our latest piece of research, a collaboration between Thomas Swift, Stephen Rimmer and Richard Hoskins from University of Bradford and Joey Shepherd, Pavintorn Teratanatorn, Ian Douglas and Sheila MacNeil from the University of Sheffield. This paper, available now from the Biomacromolecules website, shows our latest work in disclosing bacteria/polymer binding and further development towards a colorimetric sensor.
We’re delighted to confirm our latest publication with RSC Advances is now available online. This paper, published by Thomas Swift, James Lapworth, Kathryn Swindells, Linda Swanson and Stephen Rimmer concerns using two fluorescence labels to track the swelling / collapse of a highly branched polymer with changing charge density at the chain ends.
A new paper has just been accepted by RSC Advances, written by Richard Plenderleith, Dr. Thomas Swift and Dr. Stephen Rimmer, titled Highly-branched Poly(N-isopropyl acrylamide)s with core-shell morphology below the lower critical solution temperature.
