Photopolymerization is a method of preparing polymer materials utilizing UV or visible light to initiate polymerization reactions. In the Guymon group, we focus on the use of photopolymerization in the preparation of micro/nanostructured polymeric materials using both conventional and advanced curing techniques. These structured systems have shown great promise in a range of functional materials, including anti-fibrotic/anti-bacterial biomaterials, 3D printing, water purification, and neural prosthetic devices.
