Presentation: Unique homocrystalline phase formed in stereocomplexable polymers
Pengju Pan is a professor in State Key Laboratory of Chemical Engineering, College of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Zhejiang University. He received his Ph.D. from Tokyo Institute of Technology in the area of polymer crystallization. Then, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Bioengineering Laboratory of RIKEN, Japan, in the area of assembled structures of block copolymers. In 2011, he started a faculty position in the College of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Zhejiang University. He has received the National Science Fund for Excellent Young Scholars, China. His research interests include the condensed and soft matter structures of polymers, with a focus on the polymorphic, stereocomplex crystallizations of polymers, hierarchically assembled structures and properties of crystallizable (co)polymers.
