Kookmin University is the first national private university located in Seongbuk-gu, Seoul, South Korea after the liberation of the Republic of Korea from Japan. Kookmin University was established in 1946. After South Korea was liberated from Japan, Gu kim, Soang Jo and Ikhee Shin who are the members of the cabinet in a provisional government had agreed to cultivate a great leader among the Republic of Korea in perspective, which soon became the banner of the Kookmin University. Ikhee Shin who is one of the key figures of establishment for the Kookmin University was inaugurated as the first president of the University. Kookmin University is owned by the SsangYong Group, which bought the university in 1959.Kookmin University has an academic family of 22,000 students, about 800 faculty members and 350 administrative staff. Since its establishment in 1946, approximately 60,000 students have graduated.Kookmin University includes the College of Humanities, the College of Engineering and 12 other colleges. The university includes a Graduate school which consists of three Professional Graduate Schools and ten Special Graduate Schools. Kookmin teaches in the fields of Design, Architecture, Automotive Engineering, Techno-Design, Social Science and other academic disciplines.The College of Design held the first rank in three fields and the second rank in two fields among a total of five fields as a result of a nationwide assessment in 2007 in South Korea. The college has been ranked among the top three departments in Korea with Seoul National University and Hongik University.Kookmin University's Graduate School of Techno Design, which was established with the view of nurturing "design human capability of world level", has been selected for the BK 21 project. The Techno Design School's interdisciplinary connection and expertise in educational-industrial cooperation is expected to create synergy with the "UIT design".In the Joongangilbo University Ranking 2011, the School of Economics achieved third in Korea.

The present invention relates to an amphiphilic polymer which includes a large amount of hydrophilic structures and hydrophobic structures, and thereby effectively stabilizing a membrane protein having a hydrophobic surface in an aqueous solution. A method of preparing an amphiphilic polymer represented by Formula 1 includes reacting a poly-gamma-glutamic acid with a reaction product of a fluorescent dye, biotin, an alkyl carboxylic acid having 1 to 10 carbon atoms or a cycloalkyl carboxylic acid having 5 to 20 carbon atoms having a carboxyl group, and dicyclo-hexylcarbodiimide (DCC) and reacting the poly-gamma-glutamic acid with DCC after reacting the poly-gamma-glutamic acid with the reaction product, and reacting the poly-gamma-glutamic acid with a hydrophilic amine and a hydrophobic amine.

Provided are a superhydrophobic/superoleophobic structure and a method of manufacturing the superhydrophobic/superoleophobic structure. The superhydrophobic/superoleophobic structure includes: a roughened primary structure formed on a surface of a metal base; nanopores formed in the roughened primary structure; and a hydrophobic/oleophobic layer formed on a surface of the roughened primary structure. The superhydrophobic/superoleophobic structure makes a large contact angle and a small sliding angle with both aqueous solutions and oily solutions, thereby having a high degree of superhydrophobicity/superoleophobicity. In addition, the superhydrophobic/superoleophobic structure may be formed on large or curved structural objects by the manufacturing method without using a special device.
