Voronov’s keynote presentation and invited presentation at international conferences

Andriy Voronov gives a keynote presentation entitled New Polymers and Polymer Materials based on Plant Oils at 7th International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications (ICNFA) in Budapest, Hungary on August, 18-19, 2016. ICNFA is a part 2nd World Congress on New Technologies, NewTech’16, composed of three different conferences hold simultaneously. At this event, Voronov also served as a Chair for the Congress.

Voronov named a Chair of World Congress on New Technologies in 2017

Voronov is honored to be named a Chair of the 3rd World Congress on New Technologies (NewTech’17) in Rome, Italy. This congress will be taking place on June, 6-8, 2017 and is composed of four co-located conferences, 8th International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications (ICNFA’17), 7th International Conference on Environmental Pollution and Remediation (ICEPR’17), 3rd International Conference on Biotechnology and Bioengineering (ICBB’17) and International Conference on Energy Research and Technology (ICERT’17). Each conference consists of an individual separate topic, but all of them share considerable overlap which is a basic idea for organizing this congress. The main goal is to bring together experts in various disciplines and fields from closely related but still different research areas.

In addition, prior to congress opening, a workshop on Smart Nano-objects for Alteration of Lipid bilayers (SNAL) will be organized and presented to congress attendees. For more information on the workshop visit http://icnfa.com

NDSU to host first International Symposium on Materials from Renewables

Andriy Voronov, Dean Webster, professor and chair of coatings and polymeric materials, and Mukund Sibi, NDSU Distinguished Professor of chemistry and biochemisty are Organizing Committee members of 1st International Symposium on Materials from Renewables ain conjunction with Jason Locklin, Sergiy Minko and Suraj Sharma, faculty at University of Georgia. Symposium is scheduled for July,19-20, 2016 on NDSU campus. More details on the symposium can be found at https://www.ndsu.edu/news/view/detail/25162/

Our group attended ACS Spring 2016 meeting in San Diego

Andriy Voronov, Zoriana Demchuk, and Oksana Zholobko travel to San Diego, CA on March, 13-17, 2016 to attend semi-annual American Chemical Society meeting and give oral presentations at the 13th International Symposium on Biorelated Polymers (Division of Polymer Chemistry).
Voronov’s presentation was entitled “Responsive polymer-mediated targeted delivery of curcumin to osteosarcoma”. At the Symposium, Zoriana presented her data on “Synthesis of bio-based copolymers via free radical polymerization of novel vinyl monomer from soybean oil” and Oksana discussed topic of “Synthesis and characterization of stable polypyrrole nanospheres”. Our group brought also two poster presentations to San Diego. The poster “Soybean-based polymer surfactants for personal care application” was presented by Zoriana at joint POLY-PMSE session of Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering (PMSE) and Polymer Chemistry Division (POLY). Oksana presented her work on “New amphiphilic polymers for peptide complexation” at the same poster session.
