Building polymers one molecule at a time

A Mizzou Engineering researcher has demonstrated a new method of controlling material behavior by building polymers molecule-by-molecule. Polymers are made of long, repeating chains of single molecules known as monomers. In this study, Matthias Young — an assistant professor of biomedical, biological and chemical engineering — focused on monomers that exhibit high electrochemical capabilities, making…
