|DFG Mu896/39-1: Optimizing mechanical properties of non-miscible polymer blends with customized Janus particles as compatibilizers|
|From 02/2011 to 12/2014|
|Project leader: Axel H. E. Müller, Volker Altstädt, Holger Schmalz|
|Coworkers: Tina Löbling|
The aim of this project is to find essential knowledge about the micro-mechanical effect of Janus particles as compatibilizers for non-miscible polymer blends. Of particular interest is the effect of the Janus particles as a function of their topology, cross-linking degree and the aspect ratio on the morphology, processability and the mechanical attributes of compatibilized blend systems. Janus particles are an innovative advancement of triblock terpolymers for better compatibilization, impact modification and nanostructurization of non-miscible blend systems.
