Well-defined carbon nanoparticles prepared from water-soluble shell cross-linked micelles that contain polyacrylonitrile cores. Academic Article uri icon


  • An alternative approach to nanostructured carbon materials relies on the use of covalently stabilized micellar precursors that are soluble in aqueous systems (see picture). These precursors belong to a class of shell cross-linked nanoparticles (SCKs) that are formed by self-assembly and stabilization of amphiphilic block copolymers.
