Our 2009 JACS comm on sequence control with Christophe Thomas was mentioned in C&EN!
The group was well-represented at the ACS meeting in Philadelphia – Kyle and Maria presented, James attended, and several former group members were there as well!
Congrats to Kyle O’Connor on his recent paper on thermoplastic elastomers!
Both Yuki and Qi published papers this month on polymer electrolytes! Congrats to them both on their papers!
We participated in NYS 4-H’s Career Connections program by hosting a workshop for 8th and 9th graders on polymer chemistry, which included an experiment on recycling PLA cups by degrading them into a cleaning solution. A good time was had by all!
Congratulations to our undergrad Anna Overholts who was selected as a member of the Hunter R. Rawlings III Cornell Presidential Scholars (RCPRS) program!
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Wei You from Indiana University, Bloomington to the group as a new postdoc! Wei will be working on anion exchange membranes. Welcome, Wei!
Susan, Sam, and Anna are our summer undergrads this year! Susan is working on polyesters, while Sam and Anna are working on polyethers. Have a fun summer guys!
Anna, Susan, and Sam looking forward to good times in the epoxide box!
We were thrilled to have Kendra Souther from Anne McNeil’s group at Michigan visit us for a few days to do high throughput experiments on the robot.
