Where Materials Begin and Society BenefitsFirst Demonstration of Controlled Grafting-from ROMP Bioconjugates

  • This  is  the  first  demonstration  of  living ring  opening  metathesis  polymerization (ROMP) from a biological substrate
  • Molecular  weight  control  and  complex monomer composition could be achieved
  • Adding  new  and  complex  polymers greatly  advances  the  field  of  ELMs, especially  because  the  polymerization  is completed rapidly
  • The  ability  to  easily  incorporate  and control complex polymer hybrids is at the core   of   IRG2   and   is   now   being implemented  for  cell  and  plant-  based ELMs
