Duration
01 October 2013 → 30 September 2017
Funding
Regional and community funding: Special Research Fund, Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO)
Research disciplines
  • Natural sciences
    • Macromolecular and materials chemistry
Keywords
triazolinedione PDMS Interfacial polymerization thiol-ene
 
Project description

The goal of this research project is to synthesize polymeric materials with the ability to host different functionalities and are capable to respond to specific triggers or to increase the compatibility with the surrounding environment. On one hand derivatives of the thiol-ene reaction and on the other hand a new approach, based on chemistry with the triazolinedione (TAD) group will be used to tackle both challenges.
