Table 1 Mw, Mn, Mp, PDI and optical activity of the proteinoids

From: Designed proteinoid polymers and nanoparticles encapsulating risperidone for enhanced antipsychotic activity

Proteinoida Mwb (kDa) Mnb (kDa) Mpb (kDa) PDIc (kDa) Optical activity [a] 25 °CD (°)d
Prot.1 168.0 166.3 156.8 1.00 − 11.6
Prot.2 142.6 139.5 135.1 1.02 − 6.5
Prot.3 154.2 153.9 149.3 1.00 7.8
Prot.4 132.3 126.0 126.4 1.05 4.8
  1. aThe basic Prot.1,3 and acidic Prot.2,4 proteinoids were prepared at 140 and 180 °C, respectively
  2. bMolecular weights were measured by GPC, Mp is the molecular mass at the peak
  3. cPDI is the polydispersity index, given by Mw/Mn
  4. dSpecific optical rotation (c = 1 in H2O at 25 °C)
