Visiting Scientist from Ukraine Works in Our Group for Four Months

copyVasylyna Kirianchuk, graduate student from Department of Organic Chemistry at Lviv Polytechnic National University works for four months in Voronov’s group at Coatings and Polymeric Materials Department. This is Vasylyna’s second visit of NDSU, while she is working on her thesis in Ukrainian institution. This time Vasylyna’s goal is to investigate kinetics of emulsion polymerization of plant oil-based monomers with vinyl acetate and methyl methacrylate in order to determine mechanism on latex particles formation, as well as how presence of the developed in Voronov’s group at NDSU highly hydrophobic vinyl monomers from plant oils impact emulsion polymerization mechanism and final latex properties.
