Synthesis, Characterization, Structure and Properties of Novel Non-Isocyanate Polyurethanes

To prepare novel biocomposites between cellulose (nano)fillers (nanofibers and nanocrystals) and NIPU thanks to their propensity to set up hydrogen bonding and interfacial covalent cross-linking with them.ESR9: To design biocomposites from novel waterborne or solvent-free functional NIPU polymers, where interface aspects and dispersion considerations are emphasized in order to achieve desired properties and processing characteristics.

Deformation and fracture mechanisms of wood and wood polymer biocomposites

The main objective of this project is to study the deformation and fracture mechanisms of wood and polymer impregnated wood biocomposites, characterize the mechanical properties and relate them to structural differences. In this project, strain and deformation fields are measured, during mechanical loading, using digital image correlation which is useful for material comparison, also to …
