Thermosetting polymers

This theme aims at the synthesis, development and characterization of new thermosetting polymers and (nano)composites, the study of their physico-chemical and mechanical properties, the chemical modification of polymers and nanofillers to improve their dispersion, as well as as the study of structure-property relationships. Original methods have been developed and are applied to the study of the mechanisms of polymerization reactions leading to the production of these new materials. The control of these reactions makes it possible to modulate the final properties according to the applications envisaged.
