Join us for a webinar to learn about one of the cutting-edge applications of nanoscientific research:

Molecular Imprinted Polymer Films

 Join us for a series of lectures featuring materials sciences expert Professor Rigoberto Advincula of Case Western Reserve University! With considerable expertise in the design, synthesis and characterization of new polymers and nanoscale materials, Prof. Advincula has designed a series of lectures in order to share the latest developments in nanomaterials research in a variety of applications and fields.

 In this presentation, Prof. Advincula focuses on the enzyme and receptor-inspired chemistry of polymerization around a molecular template in a lock-key mechanism of producing sensors. These methods have been modified to use electropolymerizable monomers that interact with an analyte and result in highly sensitive, selective, and portable sensors. Such sensors have been used to detect everything from pollutants, endocrine system disrupting chemicals, nerve agents, and more.

Pre-requisite: Knowledge of organic chemistry, polymerization, and electrochemical methods is preferred but not required.
