Research Interests

Research is focused mainly on the anionic polymerization of lactams : earlier 2-pyrrolidone, later anionic polymerization of e-caprolactam and its copolymerization with e-caprolactone and ω-laurolactam (activity and modification of initiation systems, (co)polymerization kinetics, non-activated polymerization, CO2 as activator etc.)  Most recently we are dealing with:
