• nanometers
  • Through a combination of crystallization-driven self-assembly of crystalline-coil BCPs in solution and selective micelle corona cross-linking, we have created short (about 130 nanometers), monodisperse cylindrical seed micelles that grow unidirectionally. (sciencemag.org)
  • sodium
  • PTX was continuously released from Pluronic P123 micelles in release medium containing 1 mol/L sodium salicylate for 24 h at 37°C. In the pharmacokinetic assessment, t1/2β and AUC of micelle formulation were 2.3 and 2.9-fold higher than that of Taxol injection. (ebscohost.com)
  • polymer
  • The polymer micelles obtained were characterized with dynamic light scattering (DLS) measurements and TEM observations. (nsti.org)
  • In this study, we examine the synthesis and characterization of polymer micelle using polymerizable cationic gemini surfactant (surfmer). (nsti.org)
  • solvent
  • Although the closest counterions partially mask a charged micelle (by up to 90%), the effects of micelle charge affect the structure of the surrounding solvent at appreciable distances from the micelle. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • Block copolymers, in which two dissimilar polymers are covalently joined together, can be designed to form micelles in solution and can be used as self-assembling injectable gels for tissue engineering or wound healing. (sciencemag.org)
  • Why is it that things like phosphlipids and glycosphingolipids (like sphingomyelin and glycosphingolipids) form lipid bilayers when theyre exposed to water, whereas some things form micelles instead? (biology-online.org)
  • i know that the structure of these is rectangular, but what exactly causes them to form the linear side-by-side bilayers, instead of just curling up circularly like a micelle? (biology-online.org)
  • lipid
  • The difficulty filling all the volume of the interior of a bilayer, while accommodating the area per head group forced on the molecule by the hydration of the lipid head group, leads to the formation of the micelle. (wikipedia.org)
  • solution
  • Typical time evolution of absolute SAXS intensities upon rapid mixing of SDS micelles (weight 1%) and 2 M NaCl solution. (esrf.eu)
  • a) Time dependence for the aspect ratio of SDS micelles, in 0.5 M NaCl solution. (esrf.eu)
  • average
  • Quantitative analysis of the SAXS data in terms of a core-shell model yields the shape as well as the average size parameters of the micelles. (esrf.eu)
  • size
  • When encapsulating hydrophobes in this way it is important to ensure the particle size is appropriate for the PEG backbone being utilized, as the number of PEG mer units (generally with a MW of 6K or 10K Daltons) determines the maximum particle size that can be successfully contained at the core of the micelle. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • And the PTX-loaded micelles increased the uptake of PTX in the plasma, ovary and uterus, lung, and kidney, but decreased uptake in the liver and brain in the biodistribution study. (ebscohost.com)
  • shape
  • The initial SDS micelles have an ellipsoidal shape characterised by an aspect ratio ( ε , the ratio of major and minor radii). (esrf.eu)
  • example
  • Block copolymer micelles are an example of a complex architecture achievable by the RAFT process, adopting a core-shell morphology under physiological conditions. (washington.edu)
