Program Description:

Polymer topics under investigation include: the synthesis and reactions of terminally functionalised oligomers; the chemical modification of polymers to confer fire-retardance; structure property correlations in polymer blends and alloys; novel polymer latices; polymer-based luminescent coding materials; electro- and photo-active polymers; ferromagnetic polymers; studies of macromolecular aggregation and motion usingfluorescent and phosphorescent probes; polymer degradation; the study of polymer microstructure by very high field NMR spectroscopy; and the study of novel water-soluble polymers and their hydrophobically modified forms.
