Most events on this list can be tied to a specific page
somewhere on the internet. List entries contain links to such pages
through the "Details". Occasionally events have no such page or the information on
it is inadequate.
In such cases I attempt to cobble together a details page myself.

Assistant Professor of Chemical & Environmental Engineering
*Engineering Functional Defects in Precisely Synthesized Macromolecules*
The development of living polymerization techniques enables the synthesis of
polymers with controlled molecular weight, chain length distribution, topology,
composition, and functionality. However, the challenge of making living
polymerizations environmentally and biologically friendly while reaching even
higher levels of precision still remains critical to advances in polymer
chemistry. The first part of this seminar introduces several solutions to these
problems and describes the employment of these developed techniques to prepare
polymer precursors for multi-functional nanocarbon materials.
The second part presents an interdisciplinary approach to quantitatively
characterizing various structural defects in polymers of different dimensions.
These generally undesirable defects are then synthesized in a controlled way and
utilized in a functional manner.
