Multicomponent Diffusion of Interacting, Nonionic Micelles with Hydrophobic Solutes
Soft Matter, 2020, Accepted Manuscript DOI: 10.1039/D0SM01406K, PaperNathan P. Alexander, Ronald Phillips, Stephanie R. Dungan Ternary diffusion coefficient matrices [D] were measured using the Taylor dispersion method, for crowded aqueous solutions of decaethylene glycol monododecyl ether (C12E10) with either decane or limonene solute. The matrix... The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal Society of Chemistry (Source: RSC - Soft Matter latest articles)

Surface charge density and fatty acids enhance the membrane permeation rate of CPP –cargo complexes
Soft Matter, 2020, Advance Article DOI: 10.1039/D0SM00673D, PaperMat ías A. Via, Natalia Wilke, Luis S. Mayorga, Mario G. Del Pópolo The CPP-effect makes reference to the process by which the membrane translocation rate of a cargo is enhanced by chemical functionalization with cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs).
