The Coughlin Group recently published in J. Phys. Chem. C

Research by Nora C. Buggy, Yifeng Du*, Mei-Chen Kuo, Soenke Seifert, Ryan J. Gasvoda, Sumit Agarwal, E. Bryan Coughlin*, and Andrew M. Herring was recently published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C. The paper is entitled, "Designing Anion-Exchange Ionomers with Oridented Nanoscale Phase Separation at a Silver Interface. Anion-exchange ionomer (AEI) thin films were prepared from triblock copolymers of polyisoprene (PIp) and polychloromethylstyrene (PCMS).  Perpendicularly aligned morphology is observed on silver, while no phase separation is observed on silicon, indicating that silver–polymer interfacial interactions drive phase separation.
