Polymer chemistry and nanocomposites engineering for energy applications

Polymeric nanocomposites engineering for energy applications

Our research is focused on the structure and functionalities of polymer-based nanocomposites, which cover chemistry synthesis of nanoparticles and morphology control, interface characterisation, and manufacturing of polymer-based nanocomposites at large scale.

The relationships of ‘structure-properties-processing’ of thermoplastic and elastomeric nanocomposites are the main research interest. The multifunctional nanocomposites with high electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, mechanical properties, biodegradability or recyclability are emerging technologies in structural composites, energy storage systems and food packaging.

PhD studentship available start from 1st Nov 2019.
