Project Title: 
Synthesizing photocatalytic single-chain polymer nanoparticles for applications in catalysis
Project Description: 
We have synthesized a dual catalytic single chain polymer nanoparticle that incorporates both a photocatalyst and an electron relay catalyst. This nanoparticle is now being used to catalyze various reactions such as dimerizations of alkenes, oxidations of benzyl alcohols and amidations.
