Click Chemitry patent applications
I did a USPTO patent application search (2/12/2010) and here is the result with "click chemistry" in the title:
1 20090306310 Method of using click chemistry to functionalize dendrimers
2 20090247651 Bioadhesive Composition Formed Using Click Chemistry
3 20090214755 CLICK CHEMISTRY SURFACE FUNCTIONALIZATION FOR RESONANT MICRO-CAVITY SENSORS
4 20090123372 DEVELOPMENT OF MOLECULAR IMAGING PROBES FOR CARBONIC ANHYDRASE-IX USING CLICK CHEMISTRY
5 20090069561 CLICK CHEMISTRY ROUTE TO TRIAZOLE DENDRIMERS
6 20090054619 Functionalization of polyglycolides by "click" chemistry
7 20080311412 Polymeric Materials Via Click Chemistry
8 20080213175 Click chemistry-derived cyclic peptidomimetics as integrin markers
9 20080170992 Click chemistry-derived cyclopeptide derivatives as imaging agents for integrins
10 20060269942 In situ click chemistry method for screening high affinity molecular imaging probes
11 20060263293 Click chemistry method for synthesizing molecular imaging probes
It would be interesting to keep an eye on the following - which ones will be finally issued and what the implications will be in regard to the original Sharpless patent.
The list can clearly tell us the scope click chemistry has extended into: dendrimer, functional materials, surface, imaging, polymer, biomolecules, biomedicine, etc.
