Fields of research

Structure property correlations in nanostructured polymers

  • S-SB-S triblock copolymers, triblock copolymer blends, multigraft copolymers
  • investigation of morphology and phase behaviour, deformation behaviour and crack propagation kinetics, applications of Essential-Work-of-Fracture concept
  • selective localization of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) within the phase morphology
  • characterisation of mechanical and electrical properties

Polymer/CNT nanocomposites

  • Dispersion of CNTs in thermoplastic polymer matrices via melt mixing
  • Dispersion of CNTs in organic solvents and polymer solutions
  • Processing of conductive polymer/CNT films via spray coating
