The project aims to provide eco-friendly solutions to achieve tensile strength and tensile modulus greater than 1GPa and 50GPa, respectively in processed products such as fibers or in engineering plastics applications.

Objective

The project aims to provide eco-friendly solutions to achieve tensile strength and tensile modulus greater than 1GPa and 50GPa, respectively in processed products such as fibers or in engineering plastics applications. Hydrogen bonding interactions, in the presence of water and ions, are investigated using advanced experimental tools. Theoretical models are developed to follow the water uptake, having implications on mechanical properties of the hydrogen bonded polymers.

The knowledge acquired by modelling, and the existing background knowhow will help to design new bio-based hydrophobic polyamides. The identified polymers are upscaled using the InSciTe infrastructure. LCA and the valorization activities of the identified polymers, including synthesis and processing, will be executed in parallel to the running work packages. The deliverables in this project include new technology, theoretical models and novel performance polycondensates.
