My general research interests are synthesis, functionalization,
and hydrogenation of polymers and resins. Radical polymerization,
incl. one of its controlled forms, the Atom Transfer Radical
Polymerization (ATRP), are studied and exploited for the design and
preparation of telechelic polydienes, self-assembling block
copolymers, functional surfaces and coatings, fuel cell membranes,
polymer nanocomposites and hybrids. Biopolymers and their use for
conservation of cultural heritage.
