Abstract null null Chirality is one of the most important structural features in biological systems. Peptides, as a class of small biomolecules, can self-assemble into various chiral supramolecular polymers with unprecedented levels of diversity and complexity, which have practical ramifications in various fields from catalysis to sensing, optics, and biomedicine. In this review, we will focus on the chiral transfer during peptide self-assembly from the molecular scale to the nano-, micro- and m...

Abstract null null Solvent separations present one of the largest opportunities for membrane technologies. Currently, industries use millions of tons of solvents for the manufacture of drugs, oils and chemicals. Multiple separations and purifications must be conducted in order to purify the products from the solvents. However, the existing separation processes are energy-intensive. Organic solvent nanofiltration (OSN) or solvent-resistant nanofiltration has emerged as an energy-efficient alterna...

Abstract null null The incorporation of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) into binary immiscible polymer blends is attracting considerable attention both from fundamental and application point of view. This paper provides a comprehensive overview about the notable recent progress in the field of polymer blend/CNT composites. Following a brief introduction of the polymer blend/CNT composites, progress in the selective localization of CNTs in immiscible blends (thermodynamic and kinetic effects), the morpho...

Abstract null null Polysaccharides are a kind of natural biopolymers and have been widely applied in various fields, especially biomedical applications, due to their fascinating properties, such as renewability, structural diversity, biodegradability and biocompatibility. However, pristine polysaccharides sometimes fail to meet the requirements in biomedical applications. Chemical modifications offer a significant means of changing the physical and chemical properties of polysaccharides and enha...

Abstract null null Supramolecular polymerization and supramolecular polymeric materials have attracted a great deal of attention over the past three decades. Traditional methods for fabricating supramolecular polymers and materials mainly focus on the self-assembly of building units, including the noncovalent polymerization of covalent monomers and the noncovalent cross-linking of linear polymers. Lately, we come up with a novel concept of supramonomer, which refers to a monomer that is fabricat...

ABSTRACT null null Since the first report of cationic reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization in 2015, there have been great developments in many aspects of cationic RAFT and degenerative chain transfer (DT) polymerizations, including effective chain-transfer agents, applicable initiators or catalysts, controllable monomers, and controlled architectures of polymers. Cationic RAFT polymerizations exhibit not only many similarities to radical RAFT polymerizations in ...

Abstract null null Ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of cyclic monomers is a prevalent and convenient method for the synthesis of well-defined polymers with initiators/catalysts that promote a nucleophilic or electrophilic attack on the monomers. Selective activation of functional groups or linkages of the monomer without those carried out in the polymer chains, especially at high conversion, is one of the challenges faced by ROP catalysts. H-bonding organocatalysts can offer precise selectivity...

Abstract null null Renewable organic batteries represent a valuable option to store sustainably generated energy and can play a major role in phasing out current carbon-based energy production. Several approaches have emerged over the last 80 years that utilize organic redox materials as active components in batteries. In particular, polymers have gained considerable interest among numerous research groups due to their (1) fast redox chemistry, in comparison to conventional active materials, (2)...

Abstract null null Superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) play important roles in our daily life, as they are applied in products for hygiene, agriculture, construction, etc. The most successful commercially used types of SAPs are acrylate-based, which include poly(acrylic acid)s, poly(acrylamide)s, poly(acrylonitrile)s and their salts. The acrylate-based SAPs have superior water-absorbent properties, but they have high molecular weight and in addition an entirely carbon atom-based and cross-linked back...
