Material Synthesis and Physical Chemistry

Block copolymer synthesis and self-assembled nanostructures
Dr. Asterios (Stergios) Pispas, Research Director
orcid googleholar

In TPCI we are interested in the synthesis of well-defined block copolymers, i.e. block copolymers whose molecular characteristics, like overall molecular weight and molecular weight of each block, chemical composition and molecular architecture can be controlled at will. To this end, we employ well-established living/controlled polymerization methodologies, as well as post polymerization functionalization strategies. By judicious choice of the monomers, the desired chemical structures and physicochemical properties are built into the macromolecules, leading to the formation of functional block copolymers.

Research is focused on the development of novel amphiphilic and double hydrophilic block copolymers with polyelectrolyte blocks. These designed block copolymers are utilized for basic structure/properties relationship determinations but also for functional nanomaterials designs and nanotechnological applications. This is due to their ability:
a) to self-assemble in a variety of nanostructures in solution, in bulk or on surfaces, which respond to external stimuli,
b) to form complex (bio)hybrid functional nanostructures with other building blocks, including nucleic acids, proteins, lipids, surfactants and inorganic nanoparticles,
c) to act as nanoscale templates, encapsulation matrices or nanoreactors in materials synthesis, as nanocarriers in drug and gene delivery systems for biomedical applications, as active materials for (bio)sensors and polymer based electrolytes or as surface modification and functionalization materials.
