Introduction to award winners
Development of Organic Synthesis Method Using Short Life Cycle Carbonilator in Polarization of Polarization
Professor Heejin Kim's task is to achieve a direct polarity reversal reaction by creating an asyl anion intermediate that has metal atoms introduced into carbon while maintaining carbon-oxygen double bonds of carbonyl, and quickly utilizing the short life medium for synthetic reactions before being consumed by negative reactions.
This study will redefine the concept of organic reactions based on partial charges of carbon and oxygen in carbonyl. It is also expected to expand the universality of research by converting to various compounds by using pro-electronic bodies.
Synthesis of catalytic nanoparticles by control of growth mechanism
Professor Jungwon Park's task is to establish a new paradigm of synthesizing the uniform structure Ensemble by adjusting the formation mechanism of nanoparticles, and apply it to solve the difficult problem of nanoparticles synthesis.
It is expected that the Ab initio synthesis approach, which utilizes the new platform to understand the multidisciplinary mechanism and uses it to control synthesis, will be applicable to a variety of material synthesis. This allows the synthesis of uniformly controlled nanoparticles, such as alloy, core/shell, and semiconductor, as well as surface structure and Defect, and is expected to extend to other material systems.
Color-changeable for external environment change and risk diagnosis Development of Smart Particles and Paint
Professor Bumjoon Kim's task is to develop naturally shaped polymeric particles that can change color at each stimulus so that it can easily detect changes in the outside environment such as temperature, light, gas and pressure with paint materials used in buildings or paints.
The technology of the task is capable of producing paint consisting only of high-molecular particles, which have great differentiation in the simplification and functionality of paint making. In addition, the emulsion-based technology is likely to make high-molecular particles on aqueous solution so that they are not harmful to the environment and can be easily applied to existing paint manufacturing processes, making it easier to commercialize and cost-saving.
A Study on Artificial Wastes Based on Nanospring Structure for Avoiding Immunity Rejection
Professor Jeong Kim, through this task, introduces a new concept of surface structure and characteristics that can be stealthy so as to have ideal blood compatibility on the surface of the artificial lung, and studies the structure in which the blood does not recognize the existence of the artificial lung itself.
The new stealth material, which is a major research area, can be applied to a variety of blood contact devices, and is expected to advance the artificial organ technology of the human body. In addition, it will serve as a turning point for expanding the existing separation film technology, which is concentrated in water treatment and gas separation, into healthcare.
