Mayuri Porwal’s first-author paper, “Stereoregular functionalized polysaccharides via cationic ring-opening polymerization of biomass-derived levoglucosan,” has been selected by Chemical Science for its ChemSci Pick of the Week Collection. Chemical Science utilizes its Pick of the Week platform to select and promote its favorite articles. The journal also shares the articles with the wider chemical community through its social media accounts.
Mayuri’s research 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.
