Sumerlin Research Group

Welcome to the website of the Research Group of Dr. Brent Sumerlin in the
Department of Chemistry at the University of Florida.

Sumerlin Research Group

























The Sumerlin Research Group investigates well-defined polymeric materials with selected functionality, composition, and molecular architecture. Our particular focus is on polymers that are water-soluble and stimuli-responsive. Such "smart" polymers have the ability to self-assemble or dissociate in solution in response to changes in their surroundings. Potential target applications include controlled and targeted drug delivery, surface modification, and the synthesis of self-healing materials. Our interests are at the interface of bio-, organic, and polymer chemistry, with particular focus on fusing the fields to prepare materials with synergistic properties.
