New Recent Publications

Our work, “Curcumin and Osteosarcoma: Can Invertible Polymeric Micelles Help?” (authors A.Maran, M.J.Yaszemski, A.Kohut, A.Voronov) is published as an invited minireview in Materials. This is another publication of our group written in collaboration with Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Published by MDPI, Materials is an open access journal and focuses on various aspects of materials science and engineering, including ceramics, glasses, polymers (plastics), semiconductors, magnetic materials, medical implant materials and biological materials, etc.

Two our recently published papers describe plant oil-based monomers research. Our work, “Free Radical Polymerization Behavior of the Vinyl Monomers from Plant Oil Triglycerides” (authors Z.Demchuk, O.Shevchuk, I.Tarnavchyk, V.Kirianchuk, A.Kohut, S.Voronov, A.Voronov) is published in ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering. This journal focuses on investigations exploring advancements, principles and approaches of green chemistry and green engineering including alternative energy, green manufacturing, biomass resources and wastes resources, etc.

Following work on this topic, Free-Radical Copolymerization Behavior of Plant-Oil-Based Vinyl Monomers and Their Feasibility in Latex Synthesis” (authors Z.Demchuk, O.Shevchuk, I.Tarnavchyk, V.Kirianchuk, A.Kohut, S.Voronov, A.Voronov) is published in ACS Omega. It is the newest open access journal from the American Chemical Society which offers researchers in various fields of chemistry and chemistry-related fields the opportunity to quickly publish new and original multidisciplinary peer reviewed research.

Our work, “Synthesis of Covalently Cross-Linked Colloidosomes from Peroxidized Pickering Emulsions (N. Popadyuk, A. Popadyuk, I.Tarnavchyk, O. Budishevska, A. Kohut, A. Voronov, S.Voronov) is published in Coatings. Special Issue on Thin Polymer Films. Published by MDPI, Coatings is an open access journal of coatings and surface engineering.

In collaboration with Department of Organic Chemistry at Lviv Polytechnic National University in Ukraine, paper entitled “Synthesis and self-assembling of amphiphilic oligoesters on the base of pyromellitic acid” appeared in Chemistry and Chemical Technology Journal, published by Lviv Polytechnic National University in Ukraine.

Book Chapter published

Our work, “Amphiphilic Invertible Polymers and Their Applications”, (authors A.Kohut, I.Hevus, S.Voronov, A.Voronov) is published in a book entitled Industrial Applications for Intelligent Polymers and Coatings edited by Majid Hosseini and Abdel Salam Hamdy Makhlouf, Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering Department, The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Published by Springer book covers basic and fundamental aspects of intelligent polymers and coatings, challenges, potential mechanisms and properties, classification and composition, synthesis, characterization and processing of intelligent polymers and smart coatings, bioactive and electroactive polymers and coatings, and stimuli responses of intelligent polymers and smart coatings.
