New publication

Zitang (Tim)’s work entitled “Side-Chain Control of Topochemical Polymer Single Crystals with Tunable Elastic Modulus” has been published in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. Congratulations!

In this work, we report a systematic study on the side chain functionalization of the bis(indandione) derivative system that can be polymerized under visible light. Precisely engineered side chains help organize the monomer crystals in a one-dimensional fashion to facilitate polymerization and improve mechanical properties. Read the story here.
