〈Name of award and short explanation about the award〉
IUPAC-MACRO 2020+ Online Short Talk Student Award
This award is given to the students who made an outstanding online short talk presentation at The 48th World Polymer Congress (IUPAC-MACRO2020+), an international conference organized by International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).
〈About awarded research〉
Title: Self-Organized 2D Nanostructured Virus Filtration Membranes Based on Smectic Liquid Crystals
We have demonstrated that membranes with 2D ionic nanochannels prepared by in situ photopolymerization of smectic liquid-crystalline monomers show high virus filtration performance.
〈Your impression & future plan〉
I am very honored to receive this award. I would like to thank Prof. Takashi Kato and collaborators for their support.
