Obiettivi formativi

The aim of the course is to highlight the applications of a few classes of polymers, and both up-to-date scientific methods and technological processes to improve their properties.

Contenuti

The course encompasses advanced technological processes in the synthesis and transformation of polymers, including new methods of polymer synthesis, introduction to hybrid materials and nanochemistry with particular emphasis to preparation and characterizion of polymer materials endowed with heterogeneous interfaces and new functional properties.

Programma esteso

Advanced technological processes in the synthesis and transformation of polymers with the final aim to improve their functional properties.

New synthetic methods for the preparation of 3D porous polymers.

Introduction to hybrid materials and applications of nanostructured materials, such as modified clays and porous materials, to polymers for improving mechanical and optical properties. Particular attention will be paid to nanocomposites, elastomers for the automotive industry and polymers for electronic applications.

Additives for better microadhesion at the heterogeneous interfaces.

Characterization of the extended interfaces by advanced methods.

The impact of nanochemistry on advanced polymeric materials for optical and structural applications.

The course includes seminars by experts in the field of polymer chemistry and will be integrated by visits to polymer companies of the area.

The student is requested to propose a subject of his interest in the field to be presented to the class.
