About this book

Functionalized Conjugated Polyelectrolytes presents a comprehensive review of these polyelectrolytes and their biomedical applications. Basic aspects like molecular design and optoelectronic properties are covered in the first chapter. Emphasis is placed on the various applications including sensing (chemical and biological), disease diagnosis, cell imaging, drug/gene delivery and disease treatment. This book explores a multi-disciplinary topic of interest to researchers working in the fields of chemistry, materials, biology and medicine. It also offers an integrated perspective on both basic research and application issues. Functionalized conjugated polyelectrolyte materials, which have already drawn considerable interest, will become a major new direction for biomedicine development.

About the authors

Shu Wang received his B.S. in Chemistry from Hebei University in 1994 and his Ph.D. from Peking University in 1999. He conducted postdoctoral research at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences from 1999 to 2001 and at the Institute of Polymers and Organic Solids, University of California at Santa Barbara from 2001 to 2004. In 2004 he became a Professor at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences. His current research interest is in the design and synthesis of conjugated polymers for biosensors, cell imaging and disease therapy applications. His scientific awards include the Chinese Chemical Society Prize for Young Chemists in 2006, National Natural Science Funds for Distinguished Young Scholars in 2007, China Academy of Science Award for Young Scientists in 2011, Chinese Chemical Society–Royal Society of Chemistry Prize for Young Chemists in 2011 and the 12th National Award for Youth in Science and Technology in 2011. He is currently Associate Editor of ACS Applied Materials Interfaces, and a member of the Editorial Boards of Langmuir, Scientific Reports, Materials Horizons, Acta Chimica Sinica, and Science China Chemistry.
