Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Polymer
  • Catalysis

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Polymer chemistry, Supramolecular chemistry, Radical polymerization, Dendrimer and Crystallography. He has included themes like Methyl acrylate, Side chain, Polymerization, Polymer and Catalysis in his Polymer chemistry study. Virgil Percec combines subjects such as Benzoic acid, Alkyl and Liquid crystal with his study of Supramolecular chemistry.

His studies in Radical polymerization integrate themes in fields like Sulfonyl halide, Solution polymerization and Disproportionation. His research investigates the link between Dendrimer and topics such as Janus that cross with problems in Vesicle. In his research on the topic of Crystallography, Polarized light microscopy is strongly related with Thermotropic crystal.

His most cited work include:

  • Dendron-Mediated Self-Assembly, Disassembly, and Self-Organization of Complex Systems (903 citations)
  • Ultrafast synthesis of ultrahigh molar mass polymers by metal-catalyzed living radical polymerization of acrylates, methacrylates, and vinyl chloride mediated by SET at 25 degrees C. (902 citations)
  • Nickel-Catalyzed Cross-Couplings Involving Carbon-Oxygen Bonds (824 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Polymer chemistry, Polymer, Liquid crystal, Polymerization and Crystallography. His Polymer chemistry research includes themes of Copolymer, Monomer, Living polymerization, Radical polymerization and Side chain. His Polymer study deals with the bigger picture of Organic chemistry.

The concepts of his Liquid crystal study are interwoven with issues in Phase transition and Phase. His work carried out in the field of Polymerization brings together such families of science as Cationic polymerization and Catalysis. He studied Crystallography and Dendrimer that intersect with Amphiphile and Janus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Polymer chemistry (54.63%)
  • Polymer (29.22%)
  • Liquid crystal (26.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Polymer chemistry (54.63%)
  • Radical polymerization (17.93%)
  • Supramolecular chemistry (16.51%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Virgil Percec mostly deals with Polymer chemistry, Radical polymerization, Supramolecular chemistry, Dendrimer and Polymerization. His Polymer chemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Acrylate, Methyl acrylate, Monomer and Catalysis, Disproportionation. As part of his research on Radical polymerization, studies on Polymer and Copolymer are part of the effort.

His Supramolecular chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Self-assembly, Macromolecule and Chirality, Stereochemistry. His Dendrimer study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Janus, Nanotechnology, Vesicle, Amphiphile and Sequence. His study in Polymerization is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Inorganic chemistry and Induction period.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Nickel-Catalyzed Cross-Couplings Involving Carbon-Oxygen Bonds (824 citations)
  • Copper(II)/Tertiary Amine Synergy in Photoinduced Living Radical Polymerization: Accelerated Synthesis of ω-Functional and α,ω-Heterofunctional Poly(acrylates) (229 citations)
  • Single electron transfer in radical ion and radical-mediated organic, materials and polymer synthesis. (225 citations)
