  • Patent number: 8716422
    Abstract: Materials and Methods for the generation of polyelectrolyte multilayers that can erode to release cationic components. The multilayers comprise layers that contain one or more cations and one or more charge-dynamic anionic polymers. Charge-dynamic anionic polymers contain side chains having removable functional groups. Removal of the functional groups results in a change in the net change in the charge of the polymer which can disrupt interactions between cations and the anionic polymers and facilitate release of cations.

  • Publication number: 20140058069
    Abstract: The present invention generally relates to particles, including microgel particles, for purifying proteins and other species. In one aspect, the particles comprise a metal-chelating moiety, which may be distributed substantially evenly throughout the particle in certain embodiments. In some cases, the particles may be porous, and in some embodiments, the particles may be made sufficiently small, for example, in order to form a microgel containing the particles. Such particles may be useful, for example, in binding metal ions (for example, nickel ions) using the metal-chelating moieties. In some embodiments, such particles may also be used to bind certain analytes (for example, proteins) containing tags which attract metal ions, for example, histidine tags. Accordingly, in certain embodiments, the particles may be used for binding or trapping proteins.
