Welcome to KT Kim Group at UNIST
The KT Kim group at UNIST is currently focusing on three main research projects.
(1) Synthetic bio-related polymers for glucose-sensing and insulin delivery systems based on polymers containing boronic acid derivatives
(2) Architectural block copolymers and their self-assembly in water
(3) Synthesis of nucleobase-containing polymers and their properties
The School of Nano-Bioscience and Chemical Engineering (NBC) provides excellent collaborative environment for researchers from different disciplines such as chemistry, physics, and biology. The school and the university are expanding their already impressive list of facilities including state-of-the-art chemical analysis and imaging instruments. Established in the city of Ulsan, a work-horse city hosting numerous large industries including automakers, shipyards, and petrochemical facilities, UNIST is an emerging research power house in the nation and in the world. The city, located near the southeastern seaboard of Korea and close to Busan, the second largest city in Korea, and a historic city of Gyeongju, also has natural and cultural charms.
