Highly branched poly(N-isopropyl acrylamide) functionalized with an inducer molecule suppresses quorum sensing in Chromobacterium violaceum

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.
