Dimeric disintegrins contain subunits of about 67 residues each with ten cysteines involved in the formation of four intra-chain disulfide bonds and two interchain cysteine linkages [3].
At lower filler concentration, the interaction of the filler with the polymer as a result of hydrogen bonding would alter inductive interchain interactions lowering the crystallinity of the macromolecule, enhancing the chain movement as a result of creating a space charge layer at the filler-polymer interface as depicted in Figure 8, and thus increasing the conductivity of the system [28].
The dendritic polymers mimic the hydrodynamic volume of spheres in solution and shows low viscosity in the melt, even at high molecular weight, due to the lack of restrictive interchain entanglements.
Furthermore, the enhanced interchain charge transport of CuPcTs-doped PPy resulted in greatly enhanced conductivity and pseudocapacitance compared with pristine PPy.
The strong interchain interactions in PPy films make the polymer insoluble in common sol-vents rendering it highly improcessable thereby de-creasing its scope of applications.
The paper is titled "High thermal conductivity in amorphous polymer blends by engineered interchain interactions.
Bound water associates closely with polymer substituents, while free water disrupts interchain van der Waals forces and acts as a plasticizer.
GA reacts with '- amino group of lysyl residues in proteins which induces the formation of interchain crosslinks and stabilizes tissues against chemical and enzymatic degradation depending upon the extent of cross-linking (11).
After expression, the half-antibodies from the 2 different cell cultures were combined in vitro, and through a series of steps of purification, reduction, and oxidation, the interchain disulfides bonded.
An intact interchain disulfide bond is required for the neurotoxicity of tetanus toxin.
Surlyn[R] 9520 is a semicrystalline ionomer with a broad melting point in the range 60-100 [degrees]C, physical cross-links in the ionomer due to interchain ionic interactions provided a "permanent" crosslinked network, while its crystals provided a temporary network.
