Moore Research Group

Welcome to the Moore Research Group

Our research interests are driven toward fundamental understanding and inspired by the prospect of using this knowledge to discover new applications. Our research efforts include:

  • Ionic Aggregation and Crystallization in Charged Polymer Membranes for Energy and Water Applications
  • Thermoreversible Gelation and Gel-State Polymer Chemistry
  • Macromolecular Frameworks in Electro/Photophysical Processes
  • Controlled Morphology-Processing Relationships of Functional Polymers
  • Specific Interactions in Polymer Blends and Nanocomposites
  • Polymer Functionalization via Reactive Twin-Screw Extrusion
  • State-of-the-Art Instrumental Characterization of Polymer Form and Function

Designed Morphology and Function of Macromolecular Assemblies – The Science and Engineering of Next-Generation Polymeric Materials
