  • Novel color sensors are less expensive to manufacture

    In the FOWINA project, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen and the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC in Würzburg have developed novel color sensors with a special microlens arrangement. The sensors can be realized directly on the chip and combine multiple fu more

  • New method measures 3D polymer processing precisely

    Recipes for three-dimensional (3D) printing, or additive manufacturing, of parts have required as much guesswork as science. Until now.  Resins and other materials that react under light to form polymers, or long chains of molecules, are attractive for 3D printing of parts ranging from architectural more

  • Tailored Polymers from a Printer

    An ever-growing number of coatings, including varnishes and printing inks, as well as tooth fillings, are cured with light. Yet, homogenous, tailored, polymer networks cannot be produced, and the materials tend to be brittle, which limits the use of photopolymers in applications like 3D printing, bi more

The graphic takes a look at the research of Econic Technologies, a company which uses catalysts to incorporate captured waste carbon dioxide into polymers, which can themselves be incorporated into useful plastics. more

Events Polymerization


Infrared Monitoring of Carbocationic Polymerization of Olefins

Real-time in situ mid-infrared monitoring of polymerization reactions involving isobutylene and styrene is the focus of this presentation. Professor Robson Storey discusses key takeaways from 17 years' experience using reaction monitoring to carry out synthetic polymer chemistry.


Emulsions and Polymerization

In the chemical industry, the polymerization and final particle distribution are affected by the initial emulsion droplet size of the monomer. This webinar discusses emulsions in polymerizations.


Reaction Calorimetry in the Chemical Industry

This webinar focuses on applications and the importance of mixing and reaction calorimetry in the chemical process industry. A series of industrial case studies on the fundamentals of scale-up are presented. During this presentation on mixing and reaction calorimetry, Ray Machado provides guidance a
