Research focus:

We strive to make polymer chemistry greener by developing more sustainable and environmentally friendly synthesis and func-tionalization methods and processes.

Important news:

  • The Puskas Group is moving to the Ohio State University!
    Professor Puskas will be leading the biomaterial and biopolymer engineering program at the
    Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering (FABE). The program will be
    closely related to Ohio State’s Discovery Themes Initiative (www.discovery.osu.edu) and
    Sustainable and Resilient Economy (SRE) program (www.discovery.osu/SRE) and plans to make global impact. The group will be part of the Materials Development Working Group of theSustainable and Resilient Economy Discovery Theme.

Focus areas:

  • Natural Rubber Biosynthesis
  • Biomimetic Polymerizations, Natural Living Carbocationic Polymerization, Model Architectures for Natural Rubber
  • Green(er) Biomaterials, Polyisobutylene (PIB)-based Biomaterials, Enzyme-catalyzed Polymer Functionalization, PEG, Solventless (liquid PDMS, PIB), Surface Modification, Probing the Polymer/Bio Interface, Green dendrimers for drug delivery
  • Greener Living/controlled polymerizations, Controlled lniMer-type Polymerizations, CIMP Controlled Garbocationic IM Polymerization, CRIMP Controlled Radical I M Polymerization, Model architectures
