Nanostructured Polymer Processing Network (2004)

Abstract:
(Dr PJ Halley;Dr DJ Martin;Dr AK Whittaker;Dr RP Rutgers;A/Prof WD Cook;Dr GP Simon;A/Prof GH Edward;Prof SN Bhattacharya;Dr TM Nicholson;A/Prof AP Mouritz) The Nanostructured Polymer Processing Network will promote the understanding and manipulation of the processing of novel nanostructured plastic materials. High technology, online polymer processing equipment will be sought that will enable the design of nanostructured polymers via a range of techniques including insitu polymerisation, nanocomposites and polymer blending which are ideal for designing high value nanostructured polymers that are tailored for high performance applications. The equipment in this proposal, when combined with existing leading edge polymer characterisation and analysis equipment, will provide a Network with international state-of-the-art equipment that will fast track the success of integrated research projects across the sites.
