22-Dec-2017 | Tong Shi, Wenlong Luo, Shaofeng Liu, Zhibo Li, Journal of Polymer Science Part A: Polymer Chemistry, 2017
ABSTRACT The random copolymers poly(LA‐ran‐CL) have improved properties of degradability, mechanical strength, elasticity, and permeability over the PLA and PCL homopolymers. However, the synthesis of such copolymers is still a great challenge in polymer chemistry. In this contribution, we ...
15-Dec-2017 | Stella Hurtley; Jake Yeston, Science , 2017
Polymer Chemistry Although polymer strands are often informally called chains, molecular topologies that actually resemble extended macroscopic chain links have proven surprisingly challenging to make. Most approaches have settled for tethering pairs of interlocked rings amid spacer segments. Wu ...
17-Nov-2017 | Stella Hurtley; Julia Fahrenkamp-Uppenbrink, Science , 2017
Polymer Chemistry Plastics are mostly produced from fossil fuel resources and are often discarded after short-term use (see the Editorial by MacArthur). In a Perspective, Hillmyer discusses two routes toward more sustainable plastics: (i) production of the monomer building blocks of commodity
17-Sep-2017 | Robert B. Grubbs; Robert H. Grubbs, Macromolecules, 2017
The ideal of living polymerization has defined research in polymer chemistry over the past 50 years. In this Perspective, we present the case that this concept has enabled the treatment of polymers as organic molecules, rather than impure mixtures of species, and allowed the translation of ...
30-Aug-2017 | Lianqin Wang; Jethro J. Brink; Ye Liu; Andrew M. Herring; Julia Ponce-Gonzalez; Daniel K. Whelligan; John R. Varcoe, Energy & Environmental Science, 2017
Radiation-grafted anion-exchange membrane (RG-AEM) research has predominantly focused on the chemical stability of the polymer-bound positively-charged head-groups that enable anion conduction. The effect of the backbone polymer chemistry, of the precursor film, on RG-AEM stability has been ...
22-Aug-2017 | Yasuyuki Tezuka, Accounts of Chemical Research, 2017
ConspectusThe precision design of topologically intriguing macromolecular architectures has continuously been an attractive challenge in polymer science and polymer materials engineering. A class of multicyclic polymer topologies, including three subclasses of spiro, bridged, and fused forms, are ...
11-Aug-2017 | Liguo Xu; Rongrong Hu; Ben Zhong Tang, Macromolecules, 2017
Multicomponent polymerization (MCP) is a fascinating synthetic method for the construction of polymers with diverse structures and multifunctionalities. As a rapidly developing field, MCP begins to show great impact in polymer chemistry and polymer materials, which attract scientists’ attention ...
10-Aug-2017 | Shin-nosuke Nishimura, Nobuyuki Higashi, Tomoyuki Koga, Chemistry - A European Journal, 2017
Precisely incorporating a wide range of structural and functional multiblocks along the polymer backbone is a significant challenge in polymer chemistry and offers promising opportunities to design highly ordered materials, including controlled polymer folding. Herein we report a facile and ...
28-Jul-2017 | Jay Hoon Park; Gregory C. Rutledge, Macromolecules, 2017
As Macromolecules celebrates its 50th anniversary, we reflect on the impact of polymer chemistry and engineering on the advancement of synthetic polymer fibers. In this Perspective, we focus on two exemplary cases: (i) high performance fibers and (ii) ultrafine electrospun fibers. High ...
