POSTECH scientists develop breakthrough technique to easily optimize electrical properties of Polyaniline nanosheets to an unprecedented level in an environmental-friendly and inexpensive way. A piece of deep frozen ice and electronic gadgets may seem to have little connection (except that they are both ‘cool’ to have on you), but ice could now play a role in opening a new era in the electronic industry where conducting polymers, simply put plastics with electrical properties, are in great demand for practical applications. Chemists at Pohang University of Science and Technolo..
POSTECH Professor Taihyun Chang (Dept. of Chemistry) was named the winner of the SPSJ International Award by the Society of Polymer Science, Japan (SPSJ). Established in 1994, SPSJ International Award is the highest honor given by the society to international scientists for their contribution to the development of polymer science and related fields. In recognition of his significant impact on the field of polymer separation and analysis, Prof. Chang was presented with the award at the SPSJ Annual Conference on May 28th in Sapporo, Japan. Prof. Chang received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry..
Toxic environmental contaminants are increasingly known to cause a number of severe health problems, in particular on fetuses, including heart failure, low cognitive ability, delayed development, and neurobehavioral disorders.A new research featured in the Environmental Science and Technology published by the American Chemical Society suggests that the fetus is more vulnerable to some pollutants with certain properties because they penetrate further into the feto-maternal system. The research found that distributions of pollutants and the mechanisms of distributions vary depending on each poll..
