Abstract

In this thesis, thiol-Michael addition was employed in the intramolecular crosslinking of thiol polymers to yield a variety of single-chain polymer nanoparticles (SCNPs). These polymer nanoparticles are ~10 nm in diameter, which is markedly smaller than conventional polymer nanoparticles. Furthermore, altered biodistribution behavior is anticipated, with improved targeting characteristics towards certain areas in the human body.
