Yangju uses a family of molecular probes to give some unexpected insights into molecular behavior in bulk polymer networks under tension. Read all about it in JACS!
Congrats to Meredith and co-workers, whose recent JACS paper is being “Spotlighted” by the journal!
Congratulations and best wishes to Cameron Brown, who has accepted a great position at Eastman in Kingsport, TN, beginning in just a week or two! Way to go, Cameron!
Congratulations to Meredith, John, and co-workers on the publication of their paper “Mechanochromic stretchable electronics” in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. A cool example of how molecular level engineering can bring useful new function to soft devices!
We’re delighted that the NSF is funding the Center for Molecularly Optimized Networks, which will give us the opportunity to work with our great colleagues at Duke (Michael Rubinstein), Northwestern (Julia Kalow), and MIT (Jeremiah Johnson & Brad Olsen). Can’t wait to see our collective big plans come to fruition over the next few years!
