    Polymer Chemistry and Supramolecular Functional Materials

Welcome to The Liu Research Group in the Department of Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Science and Technology of China. The goal of our research is to explore new methodologies in the synthesis of controlled structure polymers and understand the fundamentals of microscopic and nanoscopic structure formation in complex fluids and bulk phases, as well as in surface and interface confined geometries. We intend to create these structures in a precisely controllable manner, and to exploit the structure-property relationships in the development of multifunctional materials for potential applications in cosmetics, medicines, bioprobes, nanotechnology, and biotechnology. Our current research directions are:

  • Controlled Structure Polymers via the Convergence of Synthetic Organic and Polymer Chemistries.[More]

  • Supramolecular Organization of Surfactants, Polymers, and Functional Nanoparticles: Mechanism, Kinetic Processes, and Microstructural Fixation.[More]

  • Molecular Recognition via Non-Covalent Interactions Including Host-Guest Inclusion, Metallo-Terpyridine, and Multiple Hydrogen Bonding Interactions.[More]
