Join us for a webinar to learn about one of the cutting-edge applications of nanoscientific research:

Smart Nanostructured Coatings

 Join us for a series of lectures featuring materials sciences expert Professor Rigoberto Advincula of Case Western Reserve University! With considerable expertise in the design, synthesis and characterization of new polymers and nanoscale materials, Prof. Advincula has designed a series of lectures in order to share the latest developments in nanomaterials research in a variety of applications and fields.

 Smart coatings are deemed to be stimuli-responsive, high performance, and cost effective. Is it possible to have these smart properties beyond what is currently scalable in manufacturing and formulation of paints and packaging? In this webinar, we will investigate the paradigm and usual properties of nanostructured coatings and thin films that may well have applications in architectural coatings, industrial coatings, and packaging. The importance of utilizing nanoparticle additives and use of morphology control - investigate by innovative spectroscopic and microscopic methods enable advances in smart coatings. Examples include thermomechanical stability, abrasion resistance, superhydrophobic effects, anti-reflection properties, self-cleaning, and anti-microbial properties.
