View Resource ACS Publications: Biomacromolecules

A journal, began publishing in 2000 from American Chemical Society Publications, Biomacromolecules, is "an interdisciplinary journal focussed at the interface of polymer science and the biological sciences." A sample issue is available at the site, while other issues require a subscription.
View Resource Boston University: Center for Polymer Studies

Boston University promotes the Center for Polymer Studies' involvement in the research of polymer, random, and fractal systems and the development of experimental and computational materials for high school and undergraduate education. Users can find concise descriptions, colorful images, and abstracts of publications for the Center's many research projects including Physics of Disordered Media...
View Resource Development of Polymer-Based Artificial Haircell Using Surface Micromachining and 3D Assembly

Despite the likely first impressions created by the title, this paper does not hold the cure to balding. It does, however, describe a remarkable kind of sensor that measures fluid flow. Since "insects and fish use clusters of hair cells to monitor air or water flow," researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign developed an artificial haircell that behaves in a similar way. The...
View Resource Photoluminescence Quenching of Conjugated Macromolecules by Bipyridinium Derivatives in Aqueous Media: Charge Dependence

This article from the February 20, 2001 issue of Langmuir is available through the American Chemistry Society (ACS) Website. The ACS is celebrating the awarding of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry to one of the co-authors, Alan J. Heeger. The study dealt with quenching the photoluminescence from a water-soluble conjugated macromolecule by six bipyridinium derivatives with different charges (.html,...
View Resource University of Wisconsin-Madison Chemistry Department: The Gellman Group

The Gellman Group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison presents its research "focused on understanding the interactions involved in the folding of natural and unnatural amide polymers." After learning the basics of the Group's unnatural amino acids and beta-peptide foldamers work, users can discover its biological applications. The website offers helpful figures to explain the protein-protein...
