Research Areas

  • Tailor-made Polymers of controlled topological parameters via various polymerization processes (ionic, free radical, ATRP, coordination polymerization) : macromonomers, polydienes, cyclic polymers, star-shaped (co-)polymers, water soluble polymers, polymacromonomers, networks, hybrid polymeric materials, silsesquioxanes, graphenes
  • Synthesis and development of new catalytic complexes (based on late transition metal catalysts / Nitrogen chelating ligands) for the coordination (co-) polymerization of alpha olefins (ethylene, propylene, norbornenes) characterization / structure properties relations
  • Hydrosoluble polymers (polyethylene oxide), hydrogels, semi-permeable membranes (artificial pancreas) degradable, hydrogels as a template for the growth of cells, grafting of PEO hydrogels on surfaces, growth of hepatocytes on hydrogels, crosslinking in the presence of cells.
