Physical Chemistry of Polymers in Solution and at Interfaces: Polymer Complexation


Advanced polymer synthesis "block copolymers, miktoarm star polymers, pearl necklace polymers, microgels“ leads to an in-depth physico-chemical characterization in solution, at the interface and in bulk. Our focus is on polymer complexation, elucidating the role of architectural effects, by a mix of different techniques: spectroscopy inclusive fluorescence, IR and advanced NMR and MS, scattering techniques, and interfacial science. Electrochemistry is introduced to manipulate and investigate the solution properties of polymers.
