Ring-opening metathesis polymerization-induced self-assembly (ROMPISA)


Polymerization-induced self-assembly (PISA) has simplified the preparation of polymeric nanoparticles, expanding their commercial importance. Recently, PISA mediated via ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMPISA) has emerged as a powerful alternative to existing PISA methodologies. ROMPISA can be conducted under air in minutes, producing nano-object morphologies with unique characteristics. Herein, we highlight recent advances in this field.
