Our research group explores and develops applications of nitroxide-mediated "photo"-controlled living radical polymerization established by our group using 4-substituted 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl (TEMPO). This photoradical polymerization proceeds at room temperature in the presence of a photo-acid generator to produce polymers with a comparatively narrow molecular weight distribution for methacrylate monomers. We design and create supramolecules by self-assembly of copolymers prepared by the TEMPO-mediated photopolymerization.
We also study macromolecular design using supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2). Examples include the fabrication of superamphiphobic surface using nanospheres prepared by the self-assembly of perfluoroalkyl-containing copolymers in scCO2.
