Cyclic Polymers in The Spotlight: From Scientific Curiosity to Advanced Materials for Gene Delivery and Surface Modification
The recent works on the synthesis and application of cyclic polymers by the team of Dr. Edmondo M. Benetti, Surface Science and Technology, have been highlighted in Angewandte Chemie.
In his commentary, Prof. Richard Hoogenboom (Ghent University) reports how the latest advances in topological polymer chemistry and the subsequent applications of cyclic polymers in materials science, pioneered by Dr. Benetti and his students, have opened new possibilities in the fabrication of polymeric biointerfaces and nanoparticle hybrids.
