Joint venture – polymer development

The Microscale Polymer Processing initiative links industry research groups to eight university teams with expertise in physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and computer science. The aim was to design new plastics at the molecular level, with all the subsequent processing and product properties targetted from the design of the polymerisation itself. The group now knows the basic rules connecting molecular structure to process performance in polymer melts, and how to tailor the rules for any chemistry of polymer chain.
