This group co-polymerized organicboronic acid functionalized styrene
with functionalized maleimide groups through RAFT. This polymer
self-assembled into polymersomes in water and was shown to bind sugars
in water at neutral pH. At a high concentration of glucose (>0.3M),
the polymersomes would dissassemble.
