Polymer Science and Applications
In my laboratory, we are interested in understanding the structural and morphological
development and manipulation of complex polymer systems during preparation and processing
in real time. The focus of our research projects is the design, preparation, characterization
and application of nanostructured soft condensed materials, such as fibers (one-dimensional
orientation), films (two-dimensional orientation) and bulk material systems (three-dimensional
orientation). My current research interests are mainly focused on the use of nanostructured
materials for energy, environmental and medical applications.
We are interested in fundamental research of polymer crystallization. One ongoing
project is orientation-induced crystallization of entangled polymer chains. The behavior
of orientation-induced crystallization in polymers under flow and deformation has
been investigated using in-situ X-ray techniques. We propose that molecular orientation
affects the crystallization behavior of polymer melts in two different aspects: thermodynamic
and hydrodynamic. The thermodynamic effect involves the reduction of entropy in oriented
chains, which favors the formation of primary nuclei with small size and large density
that are mainly responsible for the increase of crystallization rate. The hydrodynamic
effect generates the landscape of molecular orientation in chains with different molecular
weights, which is responsible for the resultant morphology such as shish, kebab or
We are developing varying chemical and physical pathways to disperse nanostructured
molecules and nanosize particles (e.g. nanotubes and layered silicates) in the polymer
matrix at the molecular level. We found that the structure, property and processing
relationships are dramatically different in nanocomposites as compared to their neat
Synchrotron X-ray Scattering and Diffraction Technology Development
One unique characterization tool developed in this laboratory is the simultaneous
small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) and wide-angle x-ray diffraction (WAXD) technique
using synchrotron radiation. Dedicated to polymer research, the Advanced Polymers
Participating Research Team (AP-PRT) was formed in 1997 to develop a synchrotron X-ray
scattering beamline (X27C) at the National Synchrotron Light Source, Brookhaven National
Laboratory. This facility, the first of its kind in the U.S., was funded by Stony
Brook (Prof. B. Chu and I are spokespersons), government and industrial laboratories.
The primary focus of this PRT is to investigate polymer structure, morphology and
dynamics from atomic (1-20 Å) to microscopic scales (20 - 1000 Å) in real time and/or
in-situ using simultaneous SAXS/WAXD techniques.
Absorbable Polymers for Medical Applications, Drug Delivery and Tissue Engineering
We have developed several unique processing techniques to fabricate nanostructured
materials including (1) nonwoven membranes consisting of nanosize fibers, and (2)
nanosize particles (10 - 500 nm). FDA-approved biodegradable polymers such as polyglycolide
(PGA) and polylactide (PLA) homo- and copolymers are the base materials for forming
the nanostructured scaffolds. The biodegradation rate as well as the drug (DNA and
medicine) release rate are functions of fiber/particle size, morphology, porosity
and chemical compositions, which can be precisely controlled by processing parameters.
The major goal of this research is for medical applications, drug delivery and tissue
Breakthrough Nanofibrous Membrane Technology for Water Purification
Together with Prof. Benjamin Chu, we are focusing on the use of breakthrough nanofibrous
membranes for water purification. The major innovation of our nanofiber technology
is that membranes made of nanofiber materials in the non-woven format have drastically
improved the flux capacity (e.g. often with many times flux increase) and thereby
permitting lower operating pressures but retaining their resistance to fouling. Better
flux means less time to filter the same amount of water, which in turn decreases energy
consumption and increases cost efficiency. Better resistance to fouling refers to
the ability to avoid clogging of the membrane pores by foreign matter, such as oil,
detergents, biomacromolecules and salts that can accumulate during the purification
process. The fouling resistance of our filters requires additional considerations
on chemical composition and surface modifications.
