21 Aug 9-Anthracenylmethyl Methacrylate
Product of the month | January 2021
SP-43-0-005 is a methacrylate-based monomer bearing an anthracene group. This monomer can be used in different polymerization conditions such as classical polymerization, photopolymerization and ATRP [1,2]. For biomedical and diagnosis applications, the resulting 9-anthracenylmethyl methacrylate polymer (pAMMA) is linked on the surface of nanoparticles.
As an example, the binding of pAMMA on the surface of magnetic nanoparticles is described to lead to a significant amplification of the fluorescence signal for DNA detection . In another domain, this monomer is used to prepare conductive polymer binders for Si anode, that improve the Lithium ion battery performance by increasing the aromatic content .
