Polymer Chemistry in the Gramlich Group

We focus on the design of complex polymer architectures and chemistries that allow for the temporal and spatial control over materials and their surfaces while using sustainable polymers. We utilize controlled polymerization techniques, post-polymerization functionalization, and renewably sourced materials to create block copolymers, graft copolymers, hydrogels, and stimuli responsive materials. Overall, any project involving polymeric materials is of interest to us as these chemistries have implications in a wide array of fields. We welcome any collaborations within and outside of the University of Maine and are currently looking for new graduate and undergraduate students to join the group.
