Plenary Lecture: “Precision Functional Polymers by Precision Polymerization:  Strategy, Scope, and Future”


This Plenary Lecture will focus on the development of ionic and radical precision (or living) polymerizations, the principle of precision control, and the design catalysts. The second part will cover the precision synthesis of a variety of functional polymers (e.g., star polymers, single-chain folded macromolecules, etc.) and their functions. In addition, the lecture will conclude by discussing the future of polymerizations and polymers.

Nanocomposites for biomedical & environmental applications


In this talk I will discuss some applications in which the proper combination of synthesis and characterization methods help fine-tune the performance of a nanocomposite. In this regard, the extensive use of polysaccharides and proteins has triggered many interested applications due to the presence of amine, carboxyl and hydroxyl groups. In acidic aqueous media, the primary amine protonates giving rise to hydrogen abstraction, chelation, and other bonding forces when in the presence of an “appropriate” substrate. In this regard, I will present three investigations that our group has developed:

  1. Antibacterial Skin Patch. 
  2. Cu++ Detection Electrode
  3. Protein-coated magnetic nanowires as highly detectable optical labels.
