ITCP 01-2023 Bachelor / Master Thesis: Ultra-high molecular weight polymers


Conventional controlled polymerization techniques such as RAFT and ATRP allow a wide range of functional monomers to be polymerized, yet the maximum molecular weight that can be achieved is limited. On the other hand, ionic polymerization allows ultra-high molecular weights (UHMW) but has a low tolerance towards functional groups. In this project, advanced polymerization techniques are applied to synthesize new functional UHMW copolymers, including their post polymerization functionalization, characterization and evaluation of potential applications e.g. for electrospinning/jetting and 3D printing.
