Polymer synthesis of block-co polymers for drug delivery

​Synthesizing triblock-co-polymers for dryg delevery systems. Testing their self-assembly in water and organic solvent. Polymers are PEG, PNIPAM and PSTY which are being linked together by copper-click chemistry reactions. The novelty is the flexibility of the triblock polymer.
