The final paper from Rumman’s efforts (during his PhD and one-year postdoc here in Bristol) appeared in the latest edition of JACS! This output forms part of a very fruitful collaboration between the Faul and Manners research groups.
The use of ionic self-assembly to access non-conventional block copolymer morphologies, including tetragonal and helical structures, from a combination of polyferrocenylsilane diblock copolymer polyelectrolytes and AOT-based surfactants, is described in the communication. Congratulations to all involved!
February seems to be the month of international travel! Angel has just gone to UCLA (see his post below), Saravanan is spending a week in Grenoble with our collaborator Dr Patrice Rannou, and Ben Brown is heading off to Arkansas next week for some XPS studies. Enjoy!
Angel is visiting the Kaner lab at UCLA in Los Angeles, California. This visit represents a good opportunity to exchange ideas and learn different techniques to characterise organic semiconductors. Angel’s project involves the use of bio-inspired motifs to achieve control … Continue reading →
