June 16, 2010

Chunabing Tang, assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and member of the Polymer Nanocomposite group just published a paper with Lixia Ren and Christopher Hardy in The Journal of the American Chemical Society in which they describe the synthesis and self-assembly of block copolymers containg cobalt. TheseĀ  new polymers create intriguing aggregates and are about 1 to 4 micrometers long and 50 nanometer wide.
