Coming up with new polymer nanomaterials that could be made use of in a amount of fields.
This research will aid create new polymer nanomaterials for applications in the chemical, biomedical and composite products industries.
Combining Polymers with Nanotechnology
Nanomaterials might be very small, but they are earning enormous changes in how we live and interact with the entire world all around us. The substances are engineered on the scale of a billionth of a metre, or significantly less than one particular 10-thousandth the width of a human hair.
Dr. Zhibin Ye, Canada Research Chair in Polymer Nanomaterials, is aiming to use producing technologies to produce new polymer nanomaterials by combining polymers with emerging nanotechnology for new applications in the catalysis and composite products fields. Polymers are a massive class of compounds with a large selection of attributes that include things like equally organic and artificial products.
Ye is in search of to build light-weight but potent polymer nanocomposite products that can be made use of in the design and style of electrical power-preserving vehicles. He is also doing work to create polymer nanoparticles that encapsulate cherished metallic catalysts. Carrying out so would make it less difficult to conveniently separate and recycle catalysts for a variety of applications in the chemical market.
Ye’s research in the incredibly very small entire world of nanomaterials could direct to a amount of new applications in a number of industries.
