Priyank N. Shah, Ph.D. Post-Doctoral Research Associate


Priyank Shah, Ph.D. is a polymer chemist with strong background in living anionic, living cationic and various other controlled polymerization techniques. He received his Ph.D. from Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, Korea in 2012, and M.Sc. from The M.S. University of Baroda, India in 2006. He has expertise in synthesis of different polymeric architectures such as block, graft and star polymers with well-defined molecular weights and molecular weight distributions. He has extensively worked on various chiral polymers and unveiled various interesting phenomenon such as “governing initiation-supporting termination” and “helicity inversion due to linkage effect” in chiral polyisocyanates. Recently he has been working on projects related to development of vinyl ester resin from renewable biowaste, thermally stable membrane for CO2 capture and sequestration, application-specific elastomeric materials. He has sixteen articles as a first and coauthors, one domestic publication, one Korean patent and four invention disclosures to his credit.
