Smart Polyurea Systems

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a powerful new platform of polyureas that enable systems that are hydrolyzable, self-healing,...

Polymer Microcolumns for Gas or Vapor Separation

Dr. Suslick has developed a method to form polymer microcolumns for portable and disposable gas chromatography. Using sacrificial materials as a template, 2D and 3D...

Reversible Crosslinking of Polymers Using Molecular Switches

Dr. Braun has developed a material that can polymerize and de-polymerize using two distinct triggers. By building on reversible Spyropyan chemistry, Dr. Braun has made...

Process for the Production of Bulk Transient Materials from Cyclic Poly (phthalaldehyde)

Dr. Moore from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has developed a method for enhancing the thermal stability of cyclic poly(phthalaldehyde) (“cPPA”). cPPA is a...
