Entrepreneurial Polymer Chemistry: From the Lab to Start-Up

After almost 30 years since the definition of polymer “brush” assemblies, this crossdisciplinary area of research is now mature for its translation into technology. Thanks to the increasing efforts by polymer chemists, materials scientists and theoreticians, polymer brush-based coatings are nowadays applied to precisely adjust the interfacial physicochemical properties of materials across the lenghtscales, in a variety of formulations, ranging from tissue engineering supports to composites.
