Seminar topic: Overviewing the present and focusing the future
This Lecture will present and discuss:
(a) The progress in precision radical polymerizations and catalysis therein;
(b) Precision synthesis of functional polymers with designed architectures;
(c) Hot topics (subjectively selected) – Nanospace design in self-folding and/or micro-gel star polymers and sequence control for novel functions and 3D shape
(d) Sustainable polymer science for sustainable human society – What can we do for the current challenges such as microplastics problem, circular economy, etc.?
