Example of polymer chemistry: Catalyst + Initiator, Decoupling
Short Description

In our group, we leverage polymer physics and chemistry to design, synthesize, characterize, and optimize materials that overcome engineering challenges in the broad areas of energy, environment, and health. We take a holistic approach to materials design; we develop and utilize novel polymer synthesis techniques to tailor macromolecular chemistry, architecture, and composition in order to understand and tune interactions between polymers, small molecules, solvents, and nanoparticles in an effort to optimize material properties relevant to a particular application.
