Vladimir Sergeyev
Professor, Vice Head of Polymer Division
Department of Chemistry
Lomonosov Moscow State University


Education & Training:

Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow M.S. 1981 Chemistry
Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow Ph.D.       1988 Polymer Chemistry
Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow Doctor of Sciences 2004 Polymer Chemistry

Personal Statement:

The main field of research activity of Professor Sergeyev is the synthesis of proton/ion/electron conducting polymer composites by oxidative template polymerization in the solution, in the presence of soft-template (surfactants, polyanions) or hard template (MWCNT, polymer films). Using these approach different kinds of energy related composite materials were developed at Polymer Division of Moscow State University.
