Seminario del Dr. Wenqing Yan del Departamento de Ingeniería Civil, Ambiental y Geomática en ETH Zurich (Suiza) titulado «Developing impactful medical technologies in international contexts» – el 27 de junio de 2024, a las 12:30, en la Sala de Seminarios.


By utilizing innovative polymerization techniques involving zero-valent metals and UV light, we have developed radical polymerizations that exhibit low dispersity, high monomer conversion rates, exceptional oxygen tolerance, and minimal catalyst content. These advancements are crucial for streamlining production processes, reducing costs, and decreasing environmental pollution during the synthesis of polymers.
Moreover, by tailoring the design of macromolecular structures, we have achieved customized modifications in the physicochemical properties of macroscopic materials. This includes adjustment to wettability, friction coefficient, protein repellency, ionic selectivity, and phase change characteristics, all of which are significantly important for producing materials with superior performance, meeting specific application needs, exploring new fields, and reducing environmental pollution.
