Micelle catalyzed 4-nitrophenol reduction

In aqueous solution, molecules with both polar head group and non polar tail (amphiphilic molecules) aggregate i.e., micelles. They absorb/uptake both polar and non polar molecules from solution as a universal host. Thus the horizon of catalysis, detergency,

Theoretical design of drug carrying block copolymer micelles

One of the challenges of next generation drugs is the design of target-specific delivery of pharmaceutical agents to the cancerous tumors or diseased cells. Polymer micelles and hydrogels have been traditional candidates for drug-delivery purposes. Poorly soluble
