Accomplishments: As a National Science Foundation undergraduate intern at IBMs Almaden Research Center., he studied modeling molecular interactions that control ring-opening polymerization, co-authoring articles in Macromolecules, Organic Letters and Biomacromolecules; presented research on synthesizing molecular wires from contorted aromatics at the American Chemical Society meeting; varsity football placekicker and
I became interested in dinitrogen chemistry around 1980, and polymer chemistry (first ring-opening metathesis polymerization and later olefin and acetylene polymerization) a few years after that.
Below, a Schrock catalyst is being used for polymerisation with ring-opening metathesis.
"Mechanical stress induces a ring-opening reaction of the spiropyran that changes the color of the material," said Douglas Davis, a graduate research assistant and the paper's lead author.
You will investigate ring-opening polymerization reactions yielding biodegradable polymers.
You possess practical experience in ring-opening polymerization or upscaling of polymer synthesis.
