Multifunctional Polymers



Speciality polymers and recent developments in polymer science and technology are treated. The synthesis, characterisation, and properties are studied. Examples are:

  • Engineering plastics for structural applications (e.g. matrices for polymer (nano)composites).
  • Polymers with improved thermomechanical properties.
  • Electrical conducting polymers.
  • Non-linear optical polymers.
  • Functional polymers fot the biomedical sector.
  • Biodegradable polymers.
  • Self-healing polymers.
  • Polymers for energy applications.
