Functional Polymer Nanocomposites

Prof Chaoying Wan’s research is focused on the structure and functionalities of polymer-based nanocomposites. The research bridges new dynamic chemistry with reactive polymer processing, aiming to design and develop high performance, multifunctional and sustainable polymer technology and understand the relationship of ‘chemical structure – morphology – processing – properties’ of polymers and nanocomposites. The team specialises in

(1) High performance and energy-saving rubbers for tire industry;

(2) Sustainable bioplastic packaging;

(3) PAFS-free plastics and rubber products;

(4) Advanced rheology characterisation.
