Professor published in Macromolecules
An article by Amelia Anderson-Wile, Ohio Northern University assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry, was recently published in the Macromolecules journal.
Her article was titled “Isotactic Polypropylene with (3, 1) Chain-Walking Defects: Characterization, Crystallization, and Melting Behaviors.”
Anderson-Wile graduated with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minn. She continued her education at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., where she received both her master’s degree and Ph.D. in chemistry.
Anderson-Wile has published numerous documents in the past, including “Living Olefin Polymerization for Polyolefin Architectures (from Complex Macromolecular Architectures: Synthesis, Characterization and Self-Assembly)” and “Thin Film Transistors Bases on Alkylphenyl Quaterthiophenes: Structure and Electrical Transport Properties.”
Her research interests include polymerization of biorenewable monomers, the design and synthesis of transition metal catalysts, and polymer architectures. In addition to research, Anderson-Wile enjoys teaching organic, polymer and materials chemistry.
