What is it about?
In this paper, we report the synthesis of biodegradable hydrogel nanoparticles using a RAFT inverse miniemulsion cross-linking polymerization process.
Why is it important?
We have developed a methodology for RAFT inverse miniemulsion polymerization of 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (DMAEMA) to produce biodegradable cross-linked hydrogel nanoparticles. This was the first successful description of the use of DMAEMA in an inverse miniemulsion RAFT polymerization or inverse miniemulsion reversible deactivation radical polymerization in general.
