Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung: Synthesis, self-assembly and properties of hybrid polymers based on polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) molecules
From 03/2008 to 12/2009
Project leader: Axel H. E. Müller
Coworkers: Weian Zhang

Hybrid polymers with novel architectures based on POSS molecules, including “tadpole-shaped”, “dumbbell-shaped”, “necklace-shaped” and block hybrid polymers will be prepared using polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) molecules as monomer or initiator via living and controlled/living polymerization. The self-assembly behavior of these hybrid polymers containing POSS molecules in selective solution will be studied. The properties of these hybrid polymers containing POSS molecules will also be systemically studied, and their potential application fields will be explored.
