NANOTOUGH (FP7; 2008 - 2011)
Nanostructured toughened hybrid nanocomposites for high performance applications (NANOTOUGH) is project which aims to remove technical barriers to producing high performance polymer nanocomposites on the industrial scale, fundamental insight into the dispersion of particles within the matrix is needed. The goal of this project is to gain this insight through a series of carefully designed studies, using the most advanced experimental techniques, theoretical modeling, carried out by very experienced and skilled partners working together in a targeted and interdisciplinary fashion. The basic objective is to obtain a deeper understanding of the interfacial structure of nanocomposites within a polyolefin matrix. This knowledge will enable realization of the great performance potential of these materials through development of novel multiphase and hybrid nanocomposites.
