Clarkson University's Minko featured in ACS nano podcast
(Nanowerk News) An interview with Sergiy Minko, the Egon Matijevic Chaired Professor of Chemistry and Biomolecular Science at Clarkson University, is featured in the January ACS Nano podcast.
Minko was interviewed about a paper he cowrote with Research Professor Mikhail Motornov, graduate student Roman Sheparovych and Professor Evgeny Katz. The article, "Chemical Gating with Nanostructured Responsive Polymer Brushes: Mixed Brush versus Homopolymer Brush," published in the January edition of ACS Nano.

ACS Nano is an international forum for comprehensive articles on synthesis, assembly, characterization, theory, and simulation of nanostructures, nanobiotechnology, nanofabrication, methods and tools for nanoscience and nanotechnology, and self- and directed-assembly. The journal serves researchers at the interfaces of chemistry, biology, materials science, physics, and engineering.
Minko's research and expertise in materials science focuses on the areas of smart/responsive polymer materials, smart colloids, nanostructured thin polymer films, formation of nanowires and nanoparticles, adhesion, wetting, adsorption regulations, and single molecule devices.
