My research in Osuji Group focuses on using the liquid crystalline (LC) block copolymers and the LC supramolecular complex to prepare nano-structured, stimuli-responsive membranes with for precise separation. The orthogonal self-assembly of these materials directed by magnetic field and solvent evaporation is part of this project.
My research interest is focused on Controlled/ “Living” polymerization and synthesis of new, functional polymers for the supramolecular / self-assembled membranes that can be used in emerging fields such as the energy harvesting, precise separation, nano-templating and water purification.
