Paper led by Mayuri Porwal selected as a Chemical Science Pick of the Week

The title of Mayuri’s article is “Stereoregular functionalized polysaccharides via cationic ring-opening polymerization of biomass-derived levoglucosan.” The work was a collaboration between the Reineke Group, the Ellison Group, and the Cramer Group. It demonstrates the utility of levoglucosan as a renewably-derived scaffold, enabling facile access to tailored polysaccharides that could be important in many applications ranging from sustainable materials to biologically active polymers.

ChemSci Picks is a way for the journal to select and promote their favorite articles and share them with the wider chemical community through their social media accounts. All ChemSci Picks are also added to an on-going collection on their publishing platform.
