Prof. Huang Xiaoyu lectures on "Polymer molecular Brush and its Functional Materials"

On the morning of May 20, 2024, Professor Huang Xiaoyu, a researcher from Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, was invited by Professor Huang Hui to give a lecture on "Polymer molecular Brush and its Functional Materials" at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in Classroom 115 of the first Teaching Building.

Polymer molecular brushes have been widely used in fingerprint development, catalysis, drug delivery, antifouling coatings and lithium-ion batteries, etc., and have attracted wide attention in recent years.

In the lecture, Professor Huang Xiaoyu clearly introduced the definition, difference, structural characteristics and application of one-dimensional, two-dimensional and three-dimensional polymer molecular brushes. The first one-dimensional polymer molecular brush is also known as grafted copolymer, which refers to the copolymer formed by dense grafting of the polymer side chain to the linear polymer chain. The compact structure of one-dimensional polymer molecular brushes produces some unique properties, such as wormlike conformation, compact molecular size, and significant end-chain effects. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional polymer molecular brushes refer to polymer composite systems formed by polymer chains densely linked on the surface of various organic or inorganic substrates. The polymer composite system not only retains the properties of the matrix, but also the introduction of polymer chains gives the composite system special properties, such as corrosion resistance, colloidal stability, anti-adhesion, stimulation response, lubrication and friction. The applications of one-dimensional, two-dimensional and three-dimensional polymer molecular brush materials in fingerprint development, catalysis, drug delivery, antifouling coating and lithium-ion battery are also introduced. Finally, Professor Huang Xiaoyu exchanged and discussed with the on-site teachers and students, and got a warm response from the on-site teachers and students.
