Within the field of sustainable polymer development, the main areas of our current research are:
- Synthesis and characterization of new polymers from biomass-derived resources.
- Copolymers with well-defined architectures: AB amphiphilic copolymers for drug encapsulation and drug release, ABA block copolymers for thermoplastic elastomer applications.
- Improvement of the polymer degradation ability: stimuli degradable homopolymers and copolymers.
- Application of controlled polymerization techniques (ROP, RAFT, ATRP, SET-LRP, etc.) to produce well defined polymeric architectures.
