Molecular Manipulation Improved Structure of Polymers

Abstract:
A research team led by Northwestern University materials scientist Samuel I. Stupp has developed a novel method to improve polymers that could impact not only the plastics industry, but fields as diverse as optical communications, medicine and nanotechnology.

This new method improves polymers by changing the actual organization of the macromolecules using small molecules as additives, rather than changing a polymer's chemical structure as catalysts do.
