TRAINING STAY OF YOUNG SCIENTISTS INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT – POLYMAT, San Sebastian, Spain

POLYMAT, San Sebastian, Spain: Starting from 10th of April, 2018 the young researcher Ana Trajcheva from FTM in Skopje spent four months research and training stay at Polymat. During her stay she synthetized several nanocomposites via emulsion mixing and in-situ miniemulsion polymerization. The selected polymer system, P(MMA-co-BA-co-AA) and P(MMA-co-BA-co-HEMA) were reinforced with different weight % of graphene nanoribbons. The obtained nanocomposites were further characterized with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), dynamical mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA) and tensile test measurements.
