The scientists tied an anti-cancer drug to golden missiles using a weak chemical interaction called a noncovalent bond.
They found that by using a noncovalent bond to attach the drug to coated gold, they eliminated interference among the desired properties of each component.
Finally, the SF/SA macromolecules were spontaneous organized into the well-defined network structures by using noncovalent bonds
, presenting the layer structure morphology of hybrid scaffolds (Fig.
The nanoparticles act as multifunctional single units, which form reversible, noncovalent bonds
at specific bond angles and organize themselves into a highly ordered polymer.
Coacervates and other structures held together by noncovalent bonds
The next level consists of structures held together by noncovalent bonds.
