Abstract

An oxygen-dependent biomimetic system for DOPA, dopamine and norepinephrine polymn. exploiting the redox properties of a 5-S-cysteinylDOPA (CD)-melanin polymer is disclosed. Kinetic, chem. and SEM evidence indicates conversion of DOPA into a black insol. polymer encapsulating the active CD-melanin core.
