Programming polymers

Radical polymerisations play a key role in both commercial and fundamental research with it being in 45% of international polymer production at 100 million tons per year.However, radical polymerisations still suffer from synthetic drawbacks, such as all-carbon polymer backbones, which prevent their (bio)degradability.In this project, we'll develop novel polymers which can be programmed towards controlled degradability.Towards this goal, you'll develop a polymerisation technique that allows to incorporate small natural building blocks (i.e. peptides) into synthetic polymers. These peptide sequences will …
