Australian Journal of Chemistry showcases Molly's Honours Research
July 1, 2016
One of the most exceptional Honours years has been capped off by publication of a journal article in Australian Journal of Chemistry. Molly Rowe (UNSW Honours 2015), who received the RACI Treloar Prize and CRC for Polymers Prize for her work on highly hydrophobic polymer surface coatings via RAFT copolymerization, has had her research published in the 35APS edition of Aust. J. Chem. In her manuscript, Molly presents the synthesis and detailed characterization of RAFT copolymers that are both hydrophobic and with exceptionally high glass transition temperatures due to the incorporation of a rigid maleimide unit in the backbone.
