Synthesis of Core Cross-Linked Star Polymers
January 3, 2021 / Current Projects
Core cross-linked star (CCS) polymer consists of multiple arms tethered on the densely cross-linked core. The discrete core-shell structure of this spherical and hairy nanoobject is constructed via covalent bonds. We are exploring synthesis, compartmentalization, and functionalization of CCS polymers towards Janus functional nanoobjects useful for interfacial and catalytic applications.
