Two series of gold nanoparticles/graphene/polyurethane composite films were prepared using a solution mixing method. The first series was of constant loading of graphene/polyurethane with varying levels of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), while the second was of varying graphene content with constant loading of AuNPs. The electrical conductivity of the AuNPs/graphene/polyurethane composites was determined using the two-point probe method. For the first series, a maximum conductivity of 0.424 S cm−1 w...

Recently conducting and electroactive polymers have received the attention of researchers to explore their potential in biomedical applications. Polyurethanes (PUs) are of particular interest to make conductive polymer composites by the incorporation of conductive particles because of their inherent biocompatibility, biostability, excellent processability and good mechanical properties. In the present work, conductive composites of graphene and a siloxane polyurethane (Elast-Eon™) were prepared....

Electrically conductive polymeric materials have recently attracted considerable interest from academic and industrial researchers to explore their potential in biomedical applications such as in biosensors, drug delivery systems, biomedical implants and tissue engineering. Conventional conductive homopolymers such as polypyrrole and PEDOT show promising conductivity for these applications, however their mechanical properties, biocompatibility and processability are often poor. This has led to m...

Photo-dimerisation reactions that can be reversed upon application of an appropriate wavelength of light have generated a considerable interest in the development of new photo-responsive polymeric systems for diverse applications. The incorporation of photo-dimerisable moieties into polymers allows the fabrication of various polymer architectures with an added advantage of reversibility. This review focuses on polymeric systems that exploit photo-reversible dimerisation reactions and their appli...

A bioinspired core-bound polymeric micellar system based on hydrogen bonding and photo-crosslinking of thymine has been prepared from the amphiphilic block copolymers, poly(vinylbenzylthymine)-block-poly(vinylbenzyltriethylammonium chloride). The chemical loading and controlled release potential of these micelles was investigated using two drugs, 6-mercaptopurine and 6-thioguanine. The release kinetics of drug-loaded polymeric micelles was determined by pressure ultrafiltration and the effects o...

Bioinspired core-bound polymeric micelles, based on hydrogen bonding and photo-crosslinking, of thymine have been prepared from poly(vinylbenzylthymine)-b-poly(vinylbenzyltriethylammonium chloride). The amphiphilic block copolymer was synthesized by 2,2-tetramethylpiperidin-1-oxyl-mediated living radical polymerization in water/ethylene glycol solution. Micelle characterization and critical micelle concentration measurements demonstrated that the hydrogen bonding of the attached thymine units st...
