Laboratory of Associating Polymers and Colloids
We are developing «smart» polymer gelling systems for selective blocking of water flow
in the well. Also, we are designing new viscoelastic fluids based on wormlike surfactant
micelles for the use in hydraulic fracturing operations, a key step in tertiary oil recovery.
For more details see link.
We are developing «smart» biodegradable microgels obtained by cross-linking or
spontaneous self-assembly of associating polymers or interpolymer complexes for the
controlled and triggered delivery of drugs.
