Thermally reversible thermoset materials based on the chemical modification of alternating aliphatic polyketones - R.A. Araya Hermosilla

Posted on 17 October 2016

Researchers from Groningen have developed an alternative to epoxy resin that can repair itself when damaged. The material is also fully recyclable a limited number of times, and does not contain Bisphenol A, a substance that can disrupt the endocrine system. Rodrigo Andrés Araya Hermosilla will defend his PhD thesis on the development of this alternative.
