Ring-Opening Copolymerization

The development of sustainable plastic materials is an essential target of chemistry in the 21st century. Key objectives toward this goal include utilizing sustainable monomers and the development of polymers that can be chemically recycled/degraded. Polycarbonates synthesized from the ring-opening copolymerization (ROCOP) of epoxides and CO2, and polyesters synthesized from the ROCOP of epoxides and […]

Liquid Microjet Technology

The introduction of liquid microjet technology, enabling vacuum-based probes of the liquid phase, has allowed researchers to develop an exciting range of new experiments in the last ten years. Such experiments are designed to gain greater insight into molecular behavior inside liquids and at liquid interfaces, in turn providing a new tool for physical chemistry. […]
