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

High Performance Polymers

 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.

 Polymers permeate nearly every facet of our lives with applications present in many industries from energy production to automotive and aerospace engineering to consumer electronics, medicine, and even food production. As we scale up these industries to tackle more complex challenges and extreme demands, the development of high-performance polymers becomes key to sustaining and advancing our current capabilities as a society. Join us this session as we discuss the nanoscience behind the development of materials designed for functionality in extreme conditions such as temperature, pressure, and unique chemical environments to balance high standards of performance versus durability and manufacturing costs.
