New themed collection: Synthetic methodologies for complex macromolecular structures

We are very pleased to announce the Polymer Chemistry special collection on Synthetic methodologies for complex macromolecular structures, in honour of Professor Yusuf Yağci’s 70th birthday


Professor Yusuf Yağci has worked on various aspects of polymer synthesis during his long research career and has developed several new synthetic methodologies to create functional macromolecules. He has benefited from ionic polymerizations, photo-initiated polymerizations, as well as controlled or living radical polymerization techniques. This collection is not just limited to these topics but also aims to reflect the inspiring, creative and entertaining character of Yusuf. The Guest Editors for this collection are:

  • Dr Hatice Mutlu (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany)
  • Professor Filip Du Prez (Ghent University, Belgium)
  • Professor Remzi Becer (University of Warwick, UK)


In their Editorial, Guest Editors Hatice, Filip and Remzi, discuss the impact that Professor Yağci has had on the advancement of many fields, his commitment to the polymer chemistry community and his entertaining character.
