Two Papers Published

Our work, Features of Emulsion Copolymerization for Plant Oil-Based VinylCover image Industrial Crops and Products Monomers and Styrene (authors K.Kingsley, O.Shevchuk, Z. Demchuk, S.Voronov, A.Voronov) is published in Industrial Crops and Products journal (Elsevier). Industrial Crops and Products is an international journal publishing academic and industrial research on industrial (defined as non-food/non-feed) crops and products. For more details,


Our other work, 1H NMR Study of “Host-Guest” Interactions of Micellar Assemblies from Amphiphilic Invertible Polymers and Peptides (authors A.Kohut, O.Zholobko, I.Hevus, A.Voronov) is published in Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics journal (Wiley).  Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics journal publishes in all areas of polymer science – from chemistry, physical chemistry, and physics of polymers to polymers in materials science. For more details,









Symposium on Biotechnology, Nanomaterials and Polymers in Fargo

Zoriana, Kyle, Ihor and Oksana are involved in poster presentation session at 3rd NDSU–KU (Kagoshima University, Japan) symposium organized by NDSU Chemistry and Biochemistry Department. This annual symposium is held on October,12file-1 (1)-13 and focuses on three key areas of biotechnology, nanomaterials, and polymers. There are about 20 oral presentations in the symposium schedule, as well as two one hour poster sessions featuring work of undergraduate and graduate students from KU and NDSU on about 50 posters. Titles of poster presentations with members of our group are Features of Plant Oil-Based, Hydrophobic Monomers in Emulsion Copolymerization (is presented by Kyle), Vaccination of Pigs with improved HA and M2e Epitope Based Amphiphilic Invertible Polymeric Peptide Vaccine against Swine Influenza Viruses (is presented by Gagandeep Singh. Microbiological Sciences, NDSU, Oksana is a coauthor), Linear Resins for Coating Applications via Free-Radical Polymerization of Plant Oil Based Monomers (is presented by Ihor), Feasibility for Plant Oil-Based Acrylic Monomer in Latex Synthesis (is presented by Zoriana).
