Abstract:
Polymeric materials, due to their adaptability and array of functionality, touch almost every aspect of our daily
lives. This seminar will focus on two areas in which new behavior was engineered into “old” materials. In the
first part, I will discuss my lab’s efforts to design new polymers for water treatment membranes.
Membrane-based water purification techniques are the current state of the art, but face limitations including
thermodynamically limited transport, high material and operation costs, the perm-selectivity tradeoff, and
