Ananiy Kohut Returns to Our Group

Ananiy Kohut, visiting scientist from Department of Organic Chemistry at Lviv file-2 (1)Polytechnic National University in Ukraine, will work for four months in Voronov’s group at Coatings and Polymeric Materials Department. This is his fifth visit of NDSU, while he is working at Docent position in Ukrainian institution. This time Ananiy’s goal is to investigate features of emulsion polymerization of plant oil-based monomers, as well as to explore other application avenues for the novel biobased molecules in various polymerization processes.


Two Book Chapters Published

Our work, Synthesis of Amphiphilic Invertible Polymers for Biomedical Applications (authors A.Kohut, I.Hevus, S.Voronov, A.Voronov) is published in a book entitled Polymers for Biomedicine: Synthesis, Characterization, and Applications, edited by Carmen Scholz, University of Alabama in Huntsville. Published by John Wiley & Sons book highlights recent developments in polymer synthesis, and focuses on the chemical techniques to synthesize and characterize biomedically relevant polymers and macromolecules. The books targets aids researchers developing polymers and materials for biomedical applications.

Our another work, Enzymogel Nanoparticles Chemistry for Highly Efficient Phase Boundary Biocatalysis (authors A. Kohut, S.W. Pryor, A.Voronov, S.Minko) is published in Biocatalysis and Nanotechnology, edited by Peter Grunwald, University of Hamburg. Published by CRC Press Taylor and Francis Group book provides insights of fundamental knowledge of nanobiocatalysis and provides a detailed overview of its application potential by considering theoretical as well as experimental aspects of the respective research fields.

Voronov gives Information Session on Study and Research in Germany

Funding Opportunities for Study and Research in Germany for NDSU students. This event is hosted by NDSU International Student and Study Abroad ServiceImage result for DAAD in USas. This session is for students interested in doing a semester/year/summer or entire degree aboard, considering pursuing research at a German University or looking for a paid summer research internship in a lab. This is an opportunity for them to know more about the hundreds of Master’s programs offered in Germany, DAAD’s scholarships and find out how you can apply. During the academic year, DAAD Research Ambassadors promote study and research in Germany by working with their universities’ study abroad offices, volunteering at study abroad fairs, organizing classroom visits, info sessions, various events, and answering students’ questions.
