报告题目：Advanced materials by externally controlled ATRP
报 告 人：Professor Krzysztof Matyjaszewski (Carnegie Mellon University)
The Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP) process developed at Carnegie Mellon by Professor Krzysztof Matyjaszewski in 1994 is among the most effective and most widely used methods of conducting a controlled radical polymerization (CRP). The Matyjaszewski Polymer Group continues to improve ATRP and prepare materials with controlled topology and composition suited for many applications, including automotive, building materials, medical, military and environmental fields using this robust technology.
Kris Matyjaszewski is J.C. Warner University Professor of Natural Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. He discovered Cu-mediated atom transfer radical polymerization, commercialized in 2004 in US, Japan and Europe. He has co-authored >1000 publications (cited >126,000 times, h-index 171, Google Scholar) and holds 59 US patents. Matyjaszewski received 2017 Franklin Medal in Chemistry, 2015 Dreyfus Prize in Chemical Sciences, 2014 National Institute of Materials Science (Japan) Award, 2011 Wolf Prize in Chemistry, 2009 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, and from the ACS: 2015 Overberger Prize, 2013 AkzoNobel North America Science Award, 2011 Hermann Mark Award, 2011 Award in Applied Polymer Science, 2002 Polymer Chemistry Award, 1995 Creative Polymer Chemistry Award. He received 10 honorary degrees and is a member of National Academy of Engineering, Polish Academy of Sciences, Russian Academy of Sciences, and National Academy of Inventors.
