About the Sobkowicz Group

 

Research and teaching in the Sobkowicz-Kline Group are at the convergence of materials and engineering for environmental sustainability. We are interested in the role that polymeric materials can play in creative solutions to the critical challenges our society faces on this planet.

We have ongoing projects studying structure-property relationships and novel synthesis techniques for bio-based polymers. We focus on processing strategies for improving properties and expanding applications of bioplastics.

We are also developing new green solution manufacturing techniques for electroactive polymers used in a range of applications, such as organic photovoltaics and flexible electronics.
