Li and Colleagues Publish Polymer Cover Article

 This cover and accompanying article were published in Polymer, Vol 50, Copyright Elsevier (2009).

Professor Christopher Li, associate professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Ph.D. alumnus Lingyu Li (2006), and Ph.D. candidates Bing Li and Matthew Hood have had their research and images published as the cover article in the Volume 50, Number 4, February 9, 2009 issue of Polymer.

The article, entitled "Carbon nanotube induced polymer crystallization: The formation of nanohybrid shish–kebabs" details the research group's newly discovered “nano hybrid shish kebabs,” where the carbon nanotubes (CNT) serve as the "shish" and polymer crystals are the "kebabs." The polymer crystals bring in numerous functionalities to the otherwise inert CNTs. These “nano shish kebabs” also represent a new type of nano architecture. A variety of possible applications including catalyst supports and composites are envisioned.

According to their website, Polymer, an international journal for the science and technology of polymers published by Elsevier, publishes articles in all areas of polymer science and technology, with an emphasis on molecular or meso-scale interpretation of data.
