Open Science Seminar: Polymer Degradation

Open Seminars are monthly themed events focusing on material development. The seminars are open for all.

17.09.2018 | Christina Troelsen

Dato ons 26 sep
Tid 10:00 15:00
Sted Mogens Zieler Stuen, Konferencecentret, Frederik Nielsens vej 2, 8000 Aarhus C

Degradation of polymers is both an incorporated quality of some materials and an important factor in the use of others. Understanding the degradation of polymers is key in multiple industries from toy manufacturing to coating. Knowledge of degradation may present new opportunities in the use of polymers. A large research project, Dreamwind, investigate how composites used in production of wind turbines become reusable. The goal is to disassemble and reassemble the composite-material in new products. Intentional degradation of polymers is also important in life science where timed degradation of polymers present new opportunities in drug-delivery and regenerative medicine.

Speakers: Kristoffer Almdal, DTU; Emil Andersen, LEGO; Jens Ravnsbæk, Teknos; Mogens Hinge, AU; Ramin Aghababaei, AU; Alexander Zelikin, AU.
