Results show that the LCST also increased proportionally to the polymer concentration.
If one of each of these two different LCST copolymers is conjugated to a different antibody, then two different analytes may be assayed in the same serum sample by raising the temperature of the system to sequentially phase-separate the two different polymer-conjugated immune complex sandwiches (Fig.
Blends of polyisoprene with polybutadienes of intermediate vinyl contents (24-35%, depending on polymer molecular weight) exhibit LCST behavior.
0 and heated to various temperatures to determine the range of the LCST phase transition.
The initial basic LCST device is designed to work with one-way and two-way cable systems.
When the water of 25[degrees]C (below the LCST of PNIPAAm) was used as the coagulant, the phase-separation process is dominated by instantaneous liquid--liquid demixing.
Furthermore, they also found that the LCST can be reduced progressively increasing the molecular weight of the heat-sensitive segments or adding salt to the solution; the latter effect is known as "salting-out effect.
It was found that the enzymatic degradation of all the hydrogels was significantly inhibited below the lower LCST and above the higher LCST because of the steric hindrance of the graft chain (below the lower LCST) and shrinking of the poly (NIPAAm) copolymer crosslinker (above the higher LCST).
For example, the LCST of poly(NIPAAm) (PNIPAAm) homopolymer aqueous solution is about 32[degrees]C, close to the human body temperature (7), and can be easily manipulated buy copolymerization with other monomers (8).
The cross-linked structure of PNIPA has characteristics of hydrogels, which exhibit a critical gel transition temperature (CGTT) instead of LCST.
Hyperbranched/epoxy blends showed [11] complex phase diagrams with UCST behavior (Upper Critical Solution Temperature) at high temperatures and LCST (Lower Critical Solution Temperature) behavior at low temperatures.
