DFG Forschergruppe FOR 1497
Research Group Twin Polymerization


Poster Award
The PhD student M. Sc. Kevin Nagel, Polymer Chemistry, was awarded for the best poster during the "Fourth International Symposium Frontiers in Polymer Science" at Gardasee on 21st May 2015. The topic of the contributed poster was "Polyamide 6/SiO2 composites by coupled twin polymerization of deficient twin monomers" by K. Nagel, L. Kaßner, R.-E. Grützner, R. Minkwitz, A. Seifert and S. Spange. The poster thematized the production of polyamide 6/SiO2 materials by using a specific type of twin polymerization.
