Interested in research projects that aim to push the boundaries of polymer science? In Functional Macromolecules Lab, we investigate sequence-defined polymers towards new applications in complex materials. 1 We take an advantage of monomer sequence programmability to induce functions into synthetic macromolecules. Our current goal is to develop polymer materials that can be used for selective sensing of bioactive water contaminants. The problem of water pollution with bioactive compounds has been growing in the last few years due to the increasing consumption of drugs in developed societies and the pollution of the environment with plastics. Providing tools for efficient water quality control will allow for the widespread introduction of monitoring programs and enhance water purification processes.
