The functionalization, or utilization of the functional groups inherently present on the surfaces, of many solids; including silica (SiO2), gold, silver, germanium, lead sulfide, carbon black, iron oxides and many other metal oxide systems has been achieved, (3, 11, 12) allowing attachment of initiators for an ATRP of many monomers forming organic/inorganic hybrid nanoparticles containing an inorganic core and a tethered functional polymeric shell selected for possible application in nano-electronics, nano-photonics, catalysis, nano-patterning, drug delivery, and bio-sensing.

The second problem is the problem of gelatin plasticizing. Whengelatin materials are used at ordinary temperatures and humiditiesand when the fibrillar structure and the necessary moisture contentare retained plasticizing of gelatin poses no problem. If howeverthese conditions are not met the usual plasticizing methods fail. Inthis case the problem can be solved, in our opinion, by modificationof gelatin with high-molecular weight compounds, viz. by thepreparation of heterophase systems featuring less severe humiditydependences than the parent polymer. Such modification of gelatinlayers is now finding ever increasing applications and is carriedout either by introducing latexes into the gelatin layers or bygrafting flexible-chain polymers onto gelatin macromolecules asthere seems to be no other method available.
