Surface-initiated photo-iniferter mediated controlled polymerisation was used as a technique for the development of advanced and smart materials. Molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) shell nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesised in this way from PAMAM dendrimers, used as a graftable core, in 2 min irradiation time. Surprisingly the so-synthetised NPs were around 200 nm and had a cubic shape. Cont/d.
