Postdoc in Hawker Group Develops Metal-Coordinating Polymeric Materials

November 17, 2015

Blood may be thicker than water, but for UC Santa Barbara chemist Abby Knight the two liquids share an uncommon common bond.

Knight, a postdoctoral scholar in UCSB’s Hawker Group, would like to take what she learned from her doctoral research about removing a metal from water and extracting a different metal from human blood and apply similar concepts to develop metal-coordinating polymeric materials — a diverse group of organic components used in engineering.
