The Boydston Research Group is a diverse and highly collaborative team that engages in interdisciplinary research to develop functional materials at multiple length scales. We specialize in synthetic polymer chemistry, photoredox catalysis, polymer mechanochemistry, and additive manufacturing (3D printing). Some of our main goals include discovery and development of new polymerization methods, design and evaluation of mechanophores that can trigger the release of small molecules, and establishing complete chemical control over every voxel within 3D printed multimaterial systems. Collectively, we think about chemical processes and structure-function relationships from molecular-scale up through systems integration.
We’d like to warmly welcome Abdullah, Jerry, Ruojia, Yuanzuo, Jacob, Madelyn, and Niko to the team! We’re happy to have you 🙂January 23, 2021
In collaboration with the Long group, Sean and Dr. Yang recently reviewed the recent advances in external-stimuli-modulated polymerizations. Check out the review here: https://doi.org/10.1021/acscatal.0c03802December 11, 2020
Brock and Dr. Shen (in collaboration with the Boechler, Craig, Nelson, and Storti groups) just published a Nature Materials review on mechanochemistry. Check it out here: https://doi.org/10.1038/s41578-020-00249-wDecember 9, 2020
