Labelled actin filaments were examined in vitro by fluorescence microscopy and were seen to break in the presence of polymerizing vimentin.
They are described as polyamino ethers and are made by polymerizing liquid epoxy resins with an amine to create solid, low-melting thermoplastics.
Key statement: A process for preparing a polydiene, the process comprising the step of polymerizing conjugated diene monomer in the presence of a dihydrocarbyl ether, where said step of polymerizing takes place within a polymerization mixture that includes less than 20% by weight of organic solvent based on the total weight of the polymerization mixture, and where said step of polymerizing employs a lanthanide-based catalyst system that includes the combination of or reaction product of ingredients including (a) a lanthanide compound, (b) an aluminoxane, (c) an organoaluminum compound other than an aluminoxane, and (d) a bromine-containing compound selected from the group consisting of elemental bromine, bromine-containing mixed halogens, and organic bromides.
Key statement: An initiator is presented for anionically polymerizing monomers, to provide a functional head group on the polymer.
Key statement: A functional polymer having at least one substituent capable of forming a stable free radical is formed by polymerizing a diene monomer, such as butadiene, to form a first polymer block of the functional polymer.
