· Polymer Networks. Hydrophilic gels (hydrogels) with special properties are my main interest. My current research activities comprise superabsorbent polymers.
· Biopolymer Modification. Natural polymers from renewable resources such as proteins (collagen, keratin, etc.) and polysaccharides (cellulose, chitin, starch, natural gums, etc.) are interested to be chemically modified (by vinylic monomer grafting, IPN formation, etc.) to achieve water soluble/swellable materials with improved properties.
· Acrylic Emulsion Copolymers. Water-based acrylic emulsion may be designed for different applications, e.g. paint, leather coating, textile printing.
· New Polymer Synthesis. Synthesis and Characterization of new monomers and polymers including polyesters, polyamides, polyurethanes and ampholytic macromolecules are also interested.
