Dynamic synthetic polymer systems are emerging as modules to study structure-property functions, motivated largely by Nature’s biopolymers.
The synthesis of methacrylic zwitterionic, thermoresponsive and hydrophilic (co)polymers via copper-mediated polymerization is described.
Michael Bojdys introduces a new class of two-dimensional polymeric materials for semiconductors.
Professor Hoogenboom wins the Fifth Polymer International – IUPAC award.
Researchers from the University of Akron provide an early picture of a unified understanding of dynamic interfaces in nanostructured polymeric materials.
Fan Zhang, Christopher Tuck, Richard Hague, Yinfeng He, Ehab Saleh, You Li, Craig Sturgess and Ricky Wildman present the first continuous fabrication of inkjet-printed polyimide films in the Journal of Applied Polymer Science. The films were then used as insulating layers in capacitors. Polyimide films are traditionally fabricated by lithography, requiring the use of photoresist that […]
