Thiol-and Disulfide-Based Stimulus-Responsive Soft Materials
Thiols (RSH) and disulfides (RSSR) are components of many proteins, biopolymers, and biomolecules. Many can be interconverted by simple oxidation and reduction reactions that change drastically their properties and those of host molecules of which they are a part.
2. Some Important Reactions of Thiols and Disulfides
3. Biological Relavance of Thiols and Disulfides
4. Thiols and Disulfides in Materials Science
5. Applications of Thiomers and Disulfide-Containing Polymers
