Welcome to the home page of the Rupar research group. We are synthetic polymer chemists who introduce novel functionality into polymeric materials through the incorporation of inorganic elements. Our research encompasses the areas of polymer chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and materials science. Students in the Rupar group gain experience in the design and synthesis of both small molecules and polymers and will use a wide range of characterization techniques including NMR, IR, UV-Vis, size-exclusion chromatography, x-ray crystallography, light scattering, thermal analysis, and electron microscopy.
