Hydrogel paves way for biomedical breakthrough

Published in Advanced Functional Materials, a University of Sydney team of biomedical engineers has developed a plasma technology to robustly attach hydrogels—a jelly-like substance which is structurally similar to soft ...

Analyzing pros and cons of two composite manufacturing methods

Airplane wings, wind turbine blades, and other large parts are typically created using bulk polymerization in composite manufacturing facilities. They are heated and cured in enormous autoclaves and heated molds as big as ...

Chemists offer a new look at polymers for space industry

Employees of the Department of Physical Chemistry of Kazan Federal University have found that the mechanisms of polymerization of aryl cyanates in the solid state and in the melted state differ in the number of broken multiple ...

Tuning frontal polymerization for diverse material properties

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have improved the technique of frontal polymerization, where a small amount of heat triggers a moving reaction wave that produces a polymeric material. The new ...

Polymerization

In polymer chemistry, polymerization is a process of reacting monomer molecules together in a chemical reaction to form three-dimensional networks or polymer chains. There are many forms of polymerization and different systems exist to categorize them.
