Multiphase Polymer System Laboratory



 




Overview

Multiphase polymer system laboratory was established in1990, under the Department of Polymer Science, College of Materials Science and Engineering, Beijing University of Chemical Technology. This lab constitutes an important part of "Key laboratory of carbon fiber and functional polymer, Ministry of Education" and "Beijing Key laboratory of Novel Polymer preparation and processing".

Based on the manipulation of the interaction between interface and micro-domains and the micro-morphology of multiphase polymer systems, the science research work is focused on concentrated emulsion polymerization, surface modification of carbon nanotubes or quantum dots, and preparation of functional materials. At the same time, the technologies on the preparation of high-performance materials, polymer processing, and polymer modification are also explored. This lab is aimed at theoretical and method innovation, and continue to transfer experimental finding to industrial technology, where abundant important results were achieved in research, teaching, and development.

In recent years, this lab has completed a series of research projects granted by National Natural Science Foundation of China, 973 program, Ministry of Science and Technology, defense industry, Beijing Natural Science Foundation, and many other national and province organizations. More than 150 papers were published in core journals, in which more than 100 papers were cited by SCI. More than 20 Chinese invention patent applications were submitted and 10 were granted.

 


Main research areas:

 


1
Theoretical study of multiphase systems
