Monitoring Protein Complexation with Polyphosphazene Polyelectrolyte Using Automated Dynamic Light Scattering Titration and Asymmetric Flow Field Flow Fractionation and Protein Recognition Immunoassay

April 21, 2023
Michael Lueckheide, Alexander Marin, Harichandra Tagad, Nicholas Posey, Vivek Prabhu, Alexander Andrianov
Polyphosphazenes represent a class of intrinsically flexible polyelectrolytes with potent immunoadjuvant activity, which is enabled through non-covalent self-assembly with antigenic proteins by charge complexation. The formation of supramolecular complexes

Chapter: Structure and phase behavior of polyampholytes and polyzwitterions

March 4, 2022
Phillip Pickett, Yuanchi Ma, Vivek Prabhu, Michael Lueckheide, Nicholas Posey
Polyelectrolytes contain many units of charged moieties, often as either anionic or cationic. However, when a polymer comprises both anionic and cationic monomers, the result is a polyampholyte. Polyzwitterions are a type of polyampholyte that contain

Additive-Containing Rinses for LER and Defectivity Control During High-Resolution Resist Patterning

October 12, 2021
D L. Goldfarb, S D. Burns, M Angelopolous, S Skordas, R L. Burns, M C. Lawson, C J. Brodsky, V Vishnu, E Jablonski, Vivek Prabhu, Ronald L. Jones, B D. Vogt, Christopher Soles, Eric K. Lin, Wen-Li Wu
The addition of a surface conditioning agent to the de-ionized water rinse used to quench the photoresist development process is an attractive methodology that can afford a controlled decrease in resist line edge roughness (LER) or a reduction in

Molecular Mass Dependence of Interfacial Tension in Complex Coacervation

June 11, 2021
Debra Audus, Samim Ali, Artem Rumyantsev, Yuanchi Ma, Juan J. de Pablo, Vivek Prabhu
The interfacial tension of coacervates, the liquidlike phase composed of oppositely charged polymers that coexists at equilibrium with a supernatant, forms the basis for multiple technologies. Here we present a comprehensive set of experiments and

Lower critical solution temperature in polyelectrolyte coacervates

February 26, 2019
Samim Ali, Markus Bleuel, Vivek Prabhu
Model linear oppositely-charged polyelectrolyte complexes exhibit a lower critical solution temperature. The coexist-ence curves narrow with increasing monovalent salt concentration (Cs) that lowers the polymer concentration (Cp) in the polymer-rich phase

Complex coacervation in polyelectrolytes from a coarse-grained model

August 22, 2018
Vivek M. Prabhu, Marat Andreev, Jian Qin, Matthew Tirrell, Juan J. de Pablo, Jack F. Douglas
Polyelectrolyte coacervation refers to the formation of distinct liquid phases that arise when polyelectrolytes of opposite charge are mixed under appropriate polymer and salt concentrations. Molecular-level studies of complex polyelectrolyte coacervation

Effect of temperature on the structure and dynamics of triblock copolymer coacervate hydrogels

July 16, 2018
Vivek M. Prabhu, Ryan C. Nieuwendaal, Anand Rahalkar, Juan J. DePablo, Samanvaya Srivastava, Matthew Tirrell
Triblock copolymer coacervate gels were characterized by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and dynamic light scattering. The oppositely charged polyelectrolyte complex core size does not change with temperature. However, the neutral middle block that
