ITCP 06-2023 Bachelor- / Master Thesis: Sulfur-based polymers as a new class of functional materials
Sulfur is one of the most abundant by-product in chemical industry with only limited applications such as production of sulfuric acid. In recent years it was shown that elemental sulfur holds great potential in polymer and materials science with the development of inverse vulcanization, opening up a new class of materials need to explored. Sulfur also shows promising results in applications for energy storage, either in the electrode or in the electrolyte materials. In this project new methods for the application and incorporation of sulfur in polymerization techniques, materials synthesis and its application will be explored.
