FRONTIERS OF POLYMER SYNTHESIS

Polymer synthesis plays a significant role in the modern world. Many useful polymer materials are synthetically produced. The synthesis is intricate, involving forethought regarding sequence of polymerization, technical execution of experiments, polymer analysis of the outcomes, purification, and structural characterization. Polymer synthesis with desired properties is a challenging task, often involving considerable time and resources. Synthesis involves a trial-and-error approach with different monomers being tested in the laboratory.

The leading edge of polymer synthesis is to design through a complementary and synergistic combination of covalent and supramolecular methods. ...
