Domestic Production of Thermo-pH Responsive Polymer

Jong Kwang Hyok, the head of Laboratory at Faculty of Applied Chemical Engineering and his research group succeeded in producing non-toxic low-cost nano micellar functional material that can be used as starch derivative for drug delivery, high purity refiner of the object material and environmental improvement material with our own raw material.

This functional polymer based on starch guarantees 15~80℃ of thermal response range, ±0.1℃ of response accuracy, 1~10.4 of pH response range, and 50~90mg/L of micelle critical concentration range.
